Another Christensen girl is playing volleyball. Below Sigrid is being introduced to the crowd and above she is serving. It is a success in grade seven if the ball goes over the net. I did not go to the
extravaganza today. The teams just play each other. I plan to go see Sig when she plays at home.
I don't see how it could be but I think my leg already feels better. Sort of more alive. I am wearing the support hose and taking the meds. He said I should walk a lot. I am walking but it is pretty hot to walk a lot. There was a little bruising but it is not that bad. I think it will be gone in a week. I am hopeful that this will help my leg. What I did was have the large vein in my leg burned up. The other veins take over the job the large one did. My vein was damaged and the blood flowed backward at times. He said my other leg does not look at bad but it works even more poorly. So...I really want to have it fixed too. I think this is even going to help my knee.

Dr. Lyons was my physician. I had confidence in him. He said I did great. Some folks scream and jerk their leg away he said. Wow, all i felt was some little pin pricks. No telling what my leg looks like under this huge wrap. Tomorrow evening I take it off and see. When I looked at my leg, it reminded me of the leg below--especially with the fragile sign!
I go back in one week and then will be dismissed. I am optimistic that I am going to do great. Next appointment is at 7:30 in the morning...so Laura and I will be leaving very early for it. Erin offered to come and take me! Both my girls are the best. Sigrid called to check on me. I told her that I hope she will care for her mother when she gets old. She quickly said, "I will, Gigi".
Larry took over my chore of picking up Ingie! They went to Sonic, I think. She probably prefers his "lift" to Gigi's!

Erin took Clayton and Greta to Richland Creek today for one last adventure before school starts on Wednesday. Richland is a great place. Looks like the kids were brave and jumped off the huge rock. Erin said they did not see any snakes.
My three girls had a good first day of school. Tomorrow day two!
