Video Test and Just Talking

Blogger still looks broken to me. Icons are still missing, and some are crossed over each other and I can't even read them.

I made a video today to see if I can at least put a link here. You will have to copy it and paste it into your browser to go to it. Sorry.

I am talking about surgery I had done on my right leg last week on Thursday. It was for a bad cluster of vericose veins that had become painful, and I could feel them all the time. Jerry said they didn't look that bad, but TO ME, they looked like a giant creature resembling a worm with camel-like humps had climbed under my skin and taken up residence there. ICK!

Anyway, I was telling you IN THE VIDEO about what the doctor said. This is what he actually said to me:

"We can do what we SHOULD, OR we can do what we CAN."

I guess he was trying to say he could suffocate me with sedation as I lay on my fat belly on the bed, OR he could do nothing, and I could just suffer the pain of all the needles being poked into my sore, achy veins. He chose the latter. I felt EVERY needle prick and push and shove! I guess the Valium that he finally gave me was to calm me down so I didn't grab a syringe and shove it into one of his veins!!!


He told the nurse to get me some Verced (Pronounced: Ver Said). I remembered that drug because they gave it to Jerry's Mom when she fell and broke her wrist. She woke up forgetting eveything INCLUDING how to walk. She had go to rehab for weeks just to learn how to walk again. Other things never came back to her. Verced is some kind of drug that makes you forget. I certainly don't need any help doing that; however, it might have been nice to forget the needle torture! Anyway, I told the doctor about Jerry's Mom,and he snapped at me again and said, "WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL US YOU WERE ALLERGIC TO IT?" Does the man listen to ANYTHING I say???????????????????????

Here's a picture of my latest RAL blouse. You've seen it several times before. This is just another print, and Phylly, of course, is working on another solid. Not RAL though.


I've got to go. Hopefully, the video will show up. I make no promises, however. Sure hope Blogger gets fixed SOON!

Hugs, Joy


  1. You poor thing, that Doctor sounds horrific. Hope you are recovering well.

    Take care,

  2. You should have taken the Versed! I bet you and your doctor would have had a better time!
