Hi, girls! I don't *really* have a new "Doo". Since my hair is ultra dry, I can't blow dry it so I always go for a natural look. They're still a bit too short, but see how happy I am to have my bangs back? This is BEFORE I left for my vein Dr. appointment yesterday!
Too make a longer story long: ☺
My primary Dr. thought that my medical program would pay for the vein Dr. to do surgery on my varicose veins. I guess she thought this because my veins are some of the worse she has ever seen and I have a family history of clots and stroke. But, after sitting through a lengthy ultra sound and consultation with the vein Dr. about the surgery procedure and having my hopes SOAR that I might have pretty and pain free legs next Summer, he then informed me that although his consultation and the ultra sound were covered, I would have to pay CA$H for the surgery!
I DO NOT have a poker face so he was very apologetic and so nice and he really tried to make me feel better. He even came back out to the waiting room to talk to me some more and he put in writing that he'd do my surgery for half price! Well, that just made it worse!!! You know how it is when you're already feeling sorry for yourself and then someone comes along and shows pity? ☺ Ha-ha-ha! I spent the rest of the day in town blinking back tears and blowing my nose! Girls, that is not like me! I am NOT a crier- especially in public!!!
I was even blinking back tears while in line at K-Mart buying my Winter boots. And then do you know what happened?! The lady 2 customers in front of me paid for the lady behind her- a random act of kindness and we had this whole line of ladies blinking back tears! Ha-ha-ha! Oh my! I couldn't wait to get home and Boo-hoo in private! Ha-ha! And boo- hoo I did! Over and over and over!
To make it EVEN worse, Bobby said he thinks we should go ahead and use our moving money to get the surgery but that it is up to me! And I'm thinking, It *is* half price but.... I want to move! (Insert more tears here) Micah even hugged me and said, "Mama you just need to go watch Star Trek." I even tried watching what I thought would be a funny movie but even that made me cry! Ha-ha! What a mess! I was so glad to finally go to bed and wake up feeling better- a little anyway!
Well, it's back to work for us all on Monday so I intend to enjoy my 3 day week end! Maybe I'll get some crafting in... I know that will make me feel better... Maybe I'll work on decorating my blog for Valentine's Day, too.

(PS Doc did not feel that I am any more at risk for blood clots than the next person.)
