I am old.
It was confirmed today when I went to the doctor's office. What I thought might be a broken or fractured foot appears to be gout. GOUT! That is what old people get! I got a couple of shots in the arse and a script of steroids. I will start the meds tomorrow and if it is still hurting will have an x-ray done.
When I was at the doctor's office I had an order for blood work. When I walked into the lab located in the same building the nurse said, "haven't we already done this one?" I explained to her that we had not, this was a new issue. You know it's bad when the blood nurse remembers what she did to you. UGH!
But, I am still grateful for having the ability to go to the doctor today and also that it is not serious. Gotta keep that old head up!
