I haven’t posted much this week because surgery is an uncomfortable subject. So Scott’s family has this hereditary vascular problem that gradually turns into some pretty severe vericose veins. He got an ultrasound a few months ago because he’s been feeling some numbing sensations in his legs, and they said his veins are “messed up” (that’s the medical terminology, aren’t I brainy?). So they’re doing two procedures, one on each leg. On Thursday I took him to the hosital and they put him out deep, I had to take off work so I could take him home and make sure he was fed his painkillers. It’s difficult for him to walk and he’s recovering a little slower than he thought he would.
But that didn’t stop him from doing what he told himself he would do to compensate for having to have vascular surgery: get a new TV. I spent yesterday following him hobbling through Circuit City and Best Buy in the hunt for a big screen. The local Circuit City is going out of business and everything there was a mad rush, but the better price still came from Best Buy. Here it is:
He asks me if I was excited and to be honest, not too. I didn’t realize there was so much wrong with the last one. But I have to admit now that it’s here, Lego Batman looks incredible.
