|Happy Mothers Day!|
Good morning! Welcome to my weekly off television topic reflection on the week gone by in both words and photos I took along the way. If you're here for Survivor -- you can find any Survivor posts I make at this link right here. You can find any posts I make about TAR at this link -- The Amazing Race.
My best wishes for a happy Mothers Day to all the mothers out there reading this!
I didn't really take a ton of photos this past week. It was the week of my vascular surgeon procedure for my severe varicose veins on my right leg. The procedure (Varithena foam injection into the veins to collapse them) seems to have gone fine. But, right now I'm wrapped up tightly with foam cylinders under tight pressure bandaging under a thigh high compression stocking. I have no clue what the leg looks like under all of this. The back of my knee is severely itchy with no relief. Due to my rather chunky (okay, fat) thighs, the top rubbery part of the stocking wants to roll up and cut into me. I can't sleep well, not at all.
I have to keep the whole thing on until late this afternoon -- 48 hours from the procedure. Then I get to remove the bandages. But I'm supposed to wear this thigh-high stocking for two weeks, night and day. I'm not sure how that's going to work out.
I go to the hospital to have a Doppler ultrasound test on Thursday to make sure the procedure didn't create any blood clots and that it worked properly to close down the problem vein(s).
I'm not in actual pain, per se. Just a heck of a lot of discomfort. Oh, well ... onto the photos. Clicking on an image will bring up a larger image.

Leonia and her husband treated me to lunch on the way to the vascular surgeon on Friday. We stopped at the Bridgewater Diner and all decided to have breakfast for lunch. Scrapple and cinnamon raisin French toast for me! Mmm ...!
