looking ahead

View from my backyard...
I spent the weekend working my flower beds and vegetable garden.
I sprinkled only a small amount of sewing in to the mix.
It's Sunday night and I am whipped.
I sure wish I had more to show for the weekend but I just don't. :(
As for the rest of my week, well I can't say for sure.
I work a couple of days and then I have surgery on Thursday.
I have a feelin' that I won't be posting much this week.
My parents and sister are coming to help with my kids and the housework.
I hope to have a speedy recovery.
Oh and for those of you who are wondering what I am having done...
I might as well tell you,
It's an endovenous ablation. I have to undergo 2 surgeries per leg.
It's genetic and finally gotten to the point that I am in discomfort daily. I live on Ibuprofen.
So this is the first of 4. Once I know what to expect I think I will be less worried and stressed about it.
This also means prolonged standing (rotary cutting fabric) or prolonged sitting (at a sewing machine) is prohibited for about 10 days...whoa...
bring on the hand sewing projects......
okay enough out of me tonight...
this girl is off to bed early.

Take care.

Hope your procedure goes well! My mom has awful varicose veins but they do not hurt so she has just dealt with wearing support hose at times. Take it easy and follow the doctors' orders :)

You poor thing. Prayers that your surgery and recovery are speedy. Forget about the work part, you need to be able to sew!! Now I am off to google the surgery....even though I am an LPN, the venous part is all that I understand at this point. ;o)

May you heal fast and get the results you seek. Rest as they say to. Sewing can wait trust me no one else will do it for you so let it wait on you girlfriend. Let me know if I can help you in anyway. patty quilter000
