It is kinda hard not wearing shorts and dresses during the Summer in South Alabama. And when I do get over myself and sport either, people star at my leg, like crazy. I am not joking. Kids ask me what is on my leg while at the pool and my sweet Dantz loves to kiss my veins and say, "Ouchie".
Over Thanksgiving, I went to see Dr. William Veale. While examining my leg he said, "remarkable", "truly remarkable".
So, tomorrow it is all going down! I am scheduled for a Stab Phlebectomy. (you would think they would come up with a different name) Basically, he will make over twenty small incisions in my right leg and pull the veins out. Sounds pretty disgusting and I promise, you do not want to look at the picturse on the world wide web. I am prepared for the shark attack, I think.
Anyway, I would love your thoughts and prayers tomorrow morning! I pray that it all goes well and that I am not too uncomfortable in the days to follow. I pray that it heals properly and that this procedure works!
Please note- I do not expect my leg to ever look like the first picture, so please don't either. :-)
