fixing some holes

Spent most of the afternoon at the VA vascular clinic having my leg wounds looked at by a couple of doctors, a nurse, and a medical student from GWU. No infection, fortunately, and they told me to start using the compression sleeves I was using in Minnesota again. Between this and the four-layer bandage they applied to my legs, they estimate I'll be healed up in a month and into Jobst compression stockings again. Booya. Going back next week for a follow-up. Have not decided yet whether driving to the VA hospital downtown (actually a block off North Capitol Street over by Catholic University and the National Shrine) is as big a pain in the ass as taking the Metro; it's for sure driving anywhere in these bandages, which don't fit into my shoes, is full of fail. I do have some strap-on clog thingies I got at the hospital, but those are about as handy as clown shoes and make driving an experience I want to avoid.

Still, P and I are going to get the Sportage out of hock tomorrow and unload the Subaru. I have the feeling I'm going to miss that slushbox.

got done at the va thursday at 1645hrs and it took me till 1750 to forestheights, slow ride after a fun time doing a ett stress test and then having the eye doctor diliate my eyes to the size of coat buttins.
when i get the angie-plastic done, if they don't kill me during the nuke/ett stress test im rideing the harley-davidson.
if surgery at the va don't kiil me then DC trafic dosen't have a chance.

Yeah, I can believe it took you that long to get through downtown DC and out the other side. Just getting across the Anacostia at that time of day is enough to make you stroke out.
Speaking of which, what's with the angioplasty?

if the nuke strestes is a nogo i think the next thing will be to run a scope/camra up in the leg and find the blockages around my heart and send up the bloon.
