You guys know that I have been in and out of the doctor's office for what seems forever now. The latest being Monday with the gout. I thought the shot and meds I was taking was going to get that bothersome item out of my foot but nooooooooo. It decides to come back last night and is really kicking my ass today.
I finally called the dr's office and had another of Dr Turnbo's PAs call me back. He wanted to put me on some anti-inflammatory medicine which would make sense since it is swollen up but since I have my lovely colonoscopy scheduled for next week I do not need to take any aspirin type drug. He suggested delaying the test for a couple of weeks but I told him that is not an option since the wheels are already turning and everything set up for it next week. I have scheduled to be off of work, had preliminary blood work completed, EKG, all of that stuff so to reschedule would not make sense. He called a couple of prescriptions in for me in order to get through the test and afterwards I will contact the office for whatever else I need to clear up this gout. Yuck, I hate that word gout.
I was going to make a delicious dinner tonight for me and Joe (Steph is at her dad's house) but we will have to settle for a bowl of soup and/or a sandwich since I can't stand long enough to make the Carne Asadas I was planning.
I am thankful however to be able to have the time off from work this weekend to stay off of my foot. I am also so very thankful for health insurance. The way my year has gone had it not been for insurance I would definitely be in the poor house by now. If we look past our situation there is most always a silver lining. I choose to remember my silver lining today.
Life is good.
