This One Hurt....

It's a Great, Great Morning.....



I experienced something yesterday like never before.....

I got to see my vein!!  Not just a Blue vein that was
showing up underneath my skin, but a REAL vein and it was totally exposed to the outside world....

As most of you know, I have been having some treatments
done on my legs for some varicose veins..... (Not an easy thing to do)

I knew that the treatment yesterday was going to be a little more detailed and sure enough it was!!  Oh yes....lots of little shots!  Twelve or more in total!

About halfway through the treatment, the doctor ask me if I wanted to see my vein?  After a very small hesitation, I said YES...

So....With some kind of medical instrument in hand, the doctor held up one of my three inch veins for me to see....

I know it sounds horrific, but it was really cool!  Yes it was!

A vein is a vein and a worm is a worm.....ha!
What I'm sayin' is that my precious vein looked like one of those ugly worms that you see on the ground after a hard rain...The only difference was that the vein was a pretty pink and worms really do not have a very pretty color...

One more treatment left to do......this next Monday.....and I will be finished....

No more Aching, Tired, Hurting legs!!  And, no bulging veins in my legs...(The best part....there will be NO scars either)

I would highly recommend this for anyone that suffers from varicose veins.......which I did have, but no longer do!!

And now I have to leave you with a cute Christmas story!!

A cute Christmas Story  



It was the day AFTER Christmas at a church in San Francisco. The pastor of the church was looking at the manger scene, when he noticed that the baby Jesus figure was missing from the cradle. He immediately turned and went outside and saw a little boy with a red wagon walking down the street. And in the wagon, was the figure of the infant Jesus.


So he walked up to the boy and said, "Son, where did you get that little baby Jesus that's in your wagon?"



The little boy replied, "I got him from the church."

 
And why did you take him?" asked the pastor.


The little boy replied, "Well, about a week before Christmas, I prayed and I told Jesus if he would bring me a red wagon for Christmas, I would give him a ride in it!"

Cute story! Brought a smile to my face! I think that is interesting that you got to see one of your veins! Glad to hear the treatments are working and the end is in sight. I do medical transcription (type up reports after patients see doctors) and I'm always fascinated about the body; I'd like to see a surgery sometimes myself.

Enjoy the day!

Well, good for you. I have friends who have had this procedure and I think it is so awesome there is such available. Blessings!

I too had 'veinous' activity yesterday -- I donated blood for my surgery BUT I'm definitely not as brave as you!!! I couldn't have looked. I've donated blood hundreds of times but just cannot get myself to look!

Glad you're taking care of yourself with the vein treatments!

What a cute story! What kind of procedure are you having, I know there are several. The saline, the sealing off? The one where you have to keep your legs wrapped up for a while?

Love the story...so sweet!
I'm suppose to have my varicose vein taken care of. I have a lot of pain with it. Now I'm very curious which procedure you had done since you are so pleased with the outcome. Please do share. :)

LOL! Oh, that story is too sweet!! And, if you have little boys around, you know that is highly probable that just such a conversation COULD take place in your very own life! LOL!

Glad your vein surgery is going well! blessings ~ Tanna
