The vein killin' went okay. The actual procedure didn't take too long. There was a lot of ultrasounding and gooping up of my legs. There was some drawing and some needle poking to make me numb. I felt it a little bit still though when he was closing off the vein. My leg was kind of numb, but I guess there was still some feeling. It wasn't too bad. I got two pairs of full compression stockings. They're like black pantyhose but much tighter. I had to wear them day and night for three days. I was waking up at night because the seams were cutting into my toes. I ended up cutting the toes off one of the pairs. I didn't get a before picture of my leg but here is one after shot. Feel free to scroll past or stop reading here.
This is what we did after I had the first vein closed on that freakishly warm day- we washed the cars with the water from the rain barrel. The warm weather did not last though!
