You're so 'Vein'...!

Well, what a week it has been! There has been no sewing, making or doing much of anything...
On Wednesday I had a little operation on my left leg. Yip, I'm one of the 'lucky' ones to sport well developed, but less well functioning veins...varicose veins! Having worked in retail for many years, and spending most of that time standing in heels, it didn't help my genetically dispositioned veins much! Although my leg looked like the the London Underground map in 3D, it didn't bother me much apart from being a little unsightly! I'm not that vain that I cared much...I just covered them up anyway! But recently I started feeling pain in my legs, and a few episodes of  Phlebitis (inflammation of the veins) and clotting meant I had to have the veins removed. I was dreading it, as I'm not a very good patient! But, I can honestly say it hasn't been half as bad  as I thought it would be! The General Anaesthetic meant that I had a good old excuse to catch up on some much needed sleep (I have been burning the candle at both ends for a little too long now!), my leg is feeling okay, just a few incisions here and there which aren't too painful, and I'm on the mend!

So, I have spent much time reading...

...whilst wearing lovely white surgical tights...great...

Being spoilt...Were given 'beautiful blooms to feel better soon!'

Dear friends brought lunch, cheerful conversation, and another book to pour over...

There is much planning, dreaming and 'making'
going on in my head...

I hope you have had a good week, and that life has treated you kindly. Sending happy thoughts your way...
Tania ♥

  8. Sweet dear, I'm so sorry you've had to have surgery lately. How are you doing now a few days on? I hope dearly that you're not in a lot of pain and that this procedure will help keep any future scary problems relating to blood clots and such at bay for a very long time to come.
