Feet
« on: January 07, 2017, 06:06:15 pm »
About a week ago, I fractured the pinkey toe on my left foot.  There is nothing to be done about that than tape it to the next biggest toe and then let it heal.

Now, today the gout in my right foot has flared up.  Not badly--or, not as badly as it has in the past--but badly enough that standing and walking is painful.

Oh for a Deryni Healer!  One could probably Heal the broken toe, and could clear the urea crystals out of my foot.

Ouch!  I hope you feel better soon!

I've been there with both feet in pain simultaneously (managed to fall in 2006, breaking my left foot and spraining my right in the process of trying [and failing miserably] not to fall after breaking the left), and it is a world of suck.  All the sympathy!
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Things took a bad turn, but they're getting better.  A week ago Saturday, it flaired up at night so I could hardly sleep, but subsided by Sunday morning.  Again, Sunday night it flaired up, but subsided. Again Monday night.  Tuesday it got so bad that I didn't get a wink of sleep.  My foot was swollen like a football to the point where getting a shoe on was difficult.  I called a cab for the ER.

They gave me steroids and Oxycodone/Acetominaphine, which knocked me out and helped the pain.  I slept all day Wednesday, then because the pain pills destroyed me equilibrium, laid up Thursday, Friday, and over the long weekend.

I'm much better now.  Hardly hurts at all.

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your foot again, but glad it's getting better now.
