How many veins can I do without?


I had another vein destroyed last week. I had one in the same leg and one in the other leg redestroyed last year, 2016, in November. They had been done away with years ago. Now the damn things must like to hang around and are not really destroyed.  They don’t work. but they do not go away.   I wear compression hose. I do not like them. They do not seem to really help. I have had an ulcer for over a year. The vein destroying thing was going to heal it, but it never did so the doctor wanted to look at the whole leg vein system again with ultrasound. That was done a year ago, but guess what, this no working valves vein that they found last month was not looked at a year ago. What?  What is wrong with me? Why am I still going to this doctor? What is wrong with the technician? What the F? I go anyway and let this doctor destroy the vein. He did not know why they did not look at the vein. I do not know if he thought they ultrasound it and it was ok or what.  He looked at last year’s ultrasound and said it was not looked at so he knows nothing.  Really! I am shocked.

So maybe it was not working last year. That is good because now that the blood is not pooling around the ulcer area and it will heal up or maybe who knows and I have no idea what to do. All I can do right now is wait and see.

Everything that is done takes so long to set up, it is done and it takes so long to see if it helps any at all. I am not going back to this doctor after 2017 unless something starts to help soon.  I have one other reason I have not stopped going to him, but I will just see what happens with that in 2018 because I can not keep doing this.


Cherry trees


I see I have a picture of me watering a cherry tree. Well talk about a waste o time. One tree lived and without another one no cherries. Deer love cherry trees. I hate deer. Have had apples, blueberries, no pears and there is another pear close by.  I am tired and do not feel like worrying about trees.

What to write.


I am still alive. I still know the password for this site. I found out I really did not remember how many ablations I had.  I am still working.  The Gore Helex is still patching.  I wonder if it is all worth it. I wish some of the many doctors had figured out why I felt so bad all my life. I feel like everyone around me would have had a different life. Better? Maybe, who can say?

Where does the time go?


Damn. I looked at the last post. 5 years. I am still living. The ASD is still fixed.  Everything healed from the fall. I still walk, not as much, but now what is slowing me down is an ulcer on my leg, crappy veins.  I am not having much luck healing this one.  Walked a mile today on the track in Windsor. That was good distance for me now.

Why is it always something?


After I got the ASD closed with the Gore Helex I was up to walking 3 miles at a time, more than I have walked at one time in about 9 years. I had walked it in a little less than an hour and was feeling pretty good about that.

But, yes you knew this was coming…. I tripped over a speed bump in a parking lot, hit my head, broke a bone in my left hand and hit my right knee. That was three weeks ago. I still have a bump and bruise on my forehead and around my left eye, a cast on my left hand and arm and my knee is still swollen. I did not walk much for a week. Now I am up to a mile and a half at a time. I am hoping to be walking 2 miles and then 3 miles again before to long because I want to walk in the 5 K Hog Jog in Smithfield, VA on Saturday, October 12, 2012.

I did walk 3 one mile walks last Sunday so I think I can do it. Wish me luck.
