I Feel Like Dancing!

Gosh did I get lucky! I feel like dancing now that my Venous Vein Surgery is over and went very well. Like most day surgeries I was up and walking around the same day.

However the best decision I made in a long time was to have only one leg done at a time because living alone I knew I had to be able to take care of myself.

Since they wrapped my leg very tightly from the hip to my toes having both this way would of been very hard getting up and down and taking care of my daily needs. It was hard enough with just the one leg.

My incision only an inch long and no problems so far. Honestly the worse part was not being able to remove my bandage for two day after surgery. The nurses wrapped it so tightly it made for two long days.

You guys are the best with all your sincere get well wishes and prayers. A big believer in the power of prayer!  One of the number one things I have learned from blogging is how my friends out here in this amazing world of the internet do not hesitate to pray for you. 

I had a delightful visit from my two sons Chad and Clint Saturday. My adorable two grand babies also came with them. It was a fun afternoon. We all went out for Mexican Food and then home to play two board games. Of course, I did not win but it was good having to turn on the ole brain for some pretty good exercise.  

Kaci showed me her latest creative project. She had bought a rectangular loom from Michael's along with cute pink yarn and is knitting herself a scarf. You know me I thought it was too darling and now I am dying to know how to do it. She gave me a very quick tutorial but it will take a few more lessons for me to try it.

Bailey wanted to see where I had sat the Elvis bust he had bought me for Christmas. I could tell he was thrilled that it is sitting where I can enjoy it every day. (see my last post about my Elvis bust) 

What did you think of the big game yesterday? Were you rooting for Denver or Seattle? I have not kept up with NFL games this year so I had no preference. I did though have a feeling Seattle would walk away with it and was like the rest of the world quite surprised they dominated the entire game. I hate to say it but I felt like Denver never showed up. Sorry just my take on it.

One of the craziest bets placed on the Super Bowl took place here in Texas. A very well known business owner in Houston advertised for weeks that if you bought six thousand dollars worth of furniture from him before the Super Bowl and Seattle won then he would refund your six thousand dollars. Well turns out he is now writing checks for Seven Million Dollars. Crazy just plain Crazy!

Hope all of you are well. I think of you often and appreciate all the notes you leave me.
Love to all

I hope you have a quick recuperation, Maggie. Very smart to do one leg at a time. It sounds like you had a nice visit with all "the kids"! : )

Olga said...

I am glad to hear things are going well after the surgery. Yes, very smart to do one at a time. It sure sounds as though ou had a good time with all your boys.

Wanted the under dogs to win and they did! :0)

So very glad that all is going well for you....with visits from family to boot!
One at a time is always rest!

oh that looks like it hurts owwww
so good to be with the grand babies.
You haven't mentioned your brother lately how is he doing keeping you in my prayers.

Angela said...

I'm glad you are doing well. Good thing you didn't do both legs at the same time. The furniture man gambled big time didn't he! Incredible!

Paula said...

So glad your surgery is over and you are doing well. Wish I lived closer I could come and do something to help you. No football for me, more the online word games person. Stay warm!

Julia said...

Hi dear Maggie, I'm glad that you got only one leg done without complications. It looks mighty uncomfortable all wrapped up like a mummy but it should keep that leg warm. lol... It's a good time to get this procedure done in the cool weather, I can't imagine how uncomfortable it would be in the summer heat. I'm wishing you a speedy recovery.

I'm glad that you got to visit with your sons and grandkids. I think with Elvis by your side, you'll get better real fast.

I never heard if the window insulation helped to keep the draft from coming in.

Hugs and prayers,

Debby said...

So sorry I missed the other post. Glad it is over for one leg anyway. How would you have the surgery without going under? Glad you took the Valium. So nice to have the boys and the grands to visit. I bet you did have fun.
Gosh, that furniture guy wasn't thinking very well.
Take care and do what the doctor orders.....please. xo

Hi Maggie,

So glad your surgery went well. Prayers for a complete recovery. I was rooting for Denver -- since my beloved Giants weren't playing -- but it doesn't look like Denver was playing much, either. Seattle was awesome. Enjoyed all the football festivities.

Take good care, sweet friend.

Karen Mortensen said...

So glad you are feeling better. I wish I had bought some furniture.

Sue said...

Happy to hear that the first leg is behind you and went well. Now that will make you feel more comfortable about doing the other one!

Glad you got a visit from the family, too!

Glad you're feeling better Maggie. I guess this is a good time to do something like this because the weather isn't all the special anyway. I have some knee surgery coming up and I'm trying to get it done before spring!

take care of yourself!!!



Auntie Cake said...

Oh Maggie, so glad to hear your surgery went well and hoping for a very quick recovery. I know you don't like to be down for long! Love your Elvis bust. So sweet.

Have a great rest of the week

I'm behind on my Maggie news! I'm sorry you had to have surgery but so glad it all came out good! Now take it easy and heal and soon you will be dancing all over the place!

Dr. Kathy McCoy said...

I'm catching up after my book hiatus...but am so glad your surgery went well, Maggie. I hope you're well on the road to recovery now! And how great that your lovely family has rallied around you. That's really balm for the spirit, isn't it?

I am so glad to hear your surgery went well and you are on the mend. Our local hospital puts out a newsletter or magazine and the highlight this month was about vein surgery. It said almost the same thing thing you are up and walking the same day. Take care and rest!

Happy to hear you are better, Happy
Valentines Day Maggie.

I hope you are much better now. With my PE I am back and will start teaching a week from today.

Good luck and good health.


Sweet Tea said...

Well I see I am VERY late in seeing your post. Hopefully this surgery is nothing but a memory now and you are on to things that are "funner"! :-)

I do not believe depression is something you bring on yourself. I take 2 medicines as my body is missing something. Dreary days make it worse, but I try to accomplish a little something each day.
