Great Saphenous vein surgery

 on left leg due to damage from a blood clot (not DVT OR EB) . Procedure 1 will be fiber optic laser on Dec 2nd. Procedure 2 will be injection two weeks later. Good news is my body still makes veins.. it shows in the ultra sound and the right leg has good veins. Better news is due to it NOT being cosmetic surgery, it causing my bp to drop when I stand up or sit up in bed AND it raises my BP when I walk. Guess it can't make up it's mind ? 

 I am thankful that the doctor decided to bill it all including follow up appts as one amount so everything would be covered under this year's insurance which I have already maxed my out of pocket and co pays.

I do have to have blood work down but they agreed it could be done the week before when  I get my other blood work done.

Bad news is I have to go back to the ortho because the ultra sound of the right leg showed nothing from the veins so it has to be a muscle problem...That appt is now Monday at noon since they had a cancelation . BUT thankful they got me in now so it's on this year's ins

Good news is... the brussels sprout plants are pulled YEA!!!! I got 4 gallons of sprouts now in the freezer.   I still have 5 trays of green tomatoes.... well it's 4 trays as one is almost completely ripe and will be canned in next couple days.
