fun times (said with sarcasm)

These were Jess's varicose veins, but last Thursday he had them ripped out.

He was not put out, just given valium to take the edge off. He did really well through the procedure considering they cut him 37 times. Sometimes Jess has the tendency to pass out during these types of things...like he did last time they did a procedure similar to this on his leg. This time he waited until I was driving him home to pass out...YAY!

When I picked him up he was fine and wanted to have lunch. So we did, and then on the way home he said he was not feeling well and to pull over. As he was trying to open the car door he passed out. Well, what else do you do when you can't wake your husband up? You call 911. He finally came to and laid on the lawn next to the car (we are pulled over on a 6 lane highway, University Ave. for those who know Orem). The paramedics came and checked him out and said he just had really low blood pressure and then released him.

He is okay now. This is about a once a year occurrence, but this time it freaked me out because he had just had surgery and was kinda drugged up. Better safe then sorry, right?

Craig passed out on me right after his accident. It is really scary. Luckily we were right outside the hospital but they didn't even check him out. You are one strong lady!

I would have been reeking out. Plus how are you suppose to move someone as big as Jess. I'm glad you called for help. Scary.

Taylor doesn't bat an eye anymore when my head hits the floor from passing out. It's sad but it is very true. I seriously have the weakest stomach and it doesn't help when you have kids.

I hope Jess is doing okay. That surgery sounds crazy. I would have called 911 too! If you want to play call me :)
