I could tell you the long story about how I’ve been to the pharmacy four times in the past two weeks, about the number of medical appointments I’ve had, about the gum disease I’ve been diagnosed with three days after getting my teeth cleaned, or about the new issues with my foot. I’ll stick to a quickie about the foot.

I haven’t been to the doctor yet due to the holiday weekend, but I do believe I may have sprained my foot while standing on tiptoe to get some ziplock bags. I find out in a few hours when I go to my podiatrist. Regardless, my foot is swollen, sore, difficult to walk on…not fun. Oh, and it’s the same foot as the neuroma. I’m not sure if that’s good (at least I have one foot to walk on) or bad (it might complicate the neuroma just when things were looking up). We’ll leave it at neutral for now, with the added caveat that it’s a pain in the tuckus.

I’ve been following the RICE method, which seems to be helping. It stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. It all seems to be helping, as the swelling has gone down considerably. It does mean it’s difficult to be at the computer, as my foot is not elevated. So I’ll leave you now, and try to update on Thursday with more details about what the heck is going on.
