Two Week Follow Up...








On Wednesday I went in for my two week follow up from surgery. I waited in the waiting room for a good three hours, and was getting more and more anxious as I waited. They finally called me back and did the doppler. I was so anxious, and didn't dare look at the screen until the doppler guy, Chad, told me that everything looked good.
I met with Dr. Neglen next and he said that everything was still going well, and instead of coming in for a 4 week follow up like he was going to have me do, he wanted me to come in at 6 weeks. I am so happy about the results of the surgery. I still have pain at times in my leg, but it is significantly better. Dr. Neglen told me he was also happy about the way the surgery turned out and he was going to use some of the pictures that were taken of the vein in a conference he was going to be speaking at. So, needless to say, I will have famous veins!
On Friday night Kam and I met up with his family and attended the good 'ol Mississippi state fair. We had a good time. We took Ellison on the Merry Go Round and, she HATED it. She cried until I picked her up off the horse and held her. Kam took her on a flying ride, which she liked. We walked around, looking at the animals, which is where Ellison met her fate. We let her feed the Camels, and with the last carrot she gave him, he bit her little hand. Boy did she howl!
We have had a pretty good week. We have been staying busy with work, school and Ellison and are doing our best to keep up with it all! I have included some pics of the fair, and a pic of the what the stents look like that they placed in my leg.

I have to admit that I was VERY close to trying a deep-fried twinkie!! It was fun to run into you guys there, and it sounds like you had a really good time.

And it's good to hear that you're recovering nicely :)

Ok Lisa I almost threw up a little with that leg pic. I am so glad to hear things looked well at the 2 week check up! Sounds like you guys are doing well and having a good fall. We miss you.

Lisa,
That totally stinks that you had to go through all of that. I am glad that the Dr. is hopeful. I will definitely keep you in my prayers! Your daughter is so cute and looks like a blast.
