Good News and Not So Good News......UGH

The good news is that my head wound almost completely healed. I haven't had a bandage on it since I removed the last one on Friday at work. Joe looked at it this morning and it is basically filled in. I go back to the Wound Care Center Tuesday, hopefully for the last time. We shall see.

The not so good news is that this damned gout has acted up again. I phoned the doctor on call Saturday morning and he called in some medicine. It seems to help a little but it upsets my stomach. I took it as directed yesterday and when I first got up this morning but no more. The bad out weighs the good this time. I am trying to keep the foot elevated as much as possible but I gotta tell you, I am getting so sick of doing nothing. I can't even get a shoe on much less do anything else that requires being on my feet.

I did manage to cook Beef Stognaoff last night for dinner. Joe had been wanting it for a few weeks so I pulled out my trusty 1980s copy of Betty Crocker and made the only recipe I have ever made for it. It would have been better for me to have made a vegetarian dish for sure but I must say I enjoyed it. I think soup is in order for dinner tonight.

I have been working on building some photo albums on Walgreen's website. I've got an email where I can get 25 copies free when ordering 25. Not a problem for a gal with as many pictures as I take.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Sunday. I'm off to find my pups outside.

It's awful when you don't feel well. Take care of yourself.

When I was drinking heavy, I would have terrible bouts with cellulitis and gout! I can emphathize in what you are going through. You can bare walk!

Hang in there TB! Good news about the wound.
I print photos through Walgren's site, you upload the ones you want, run to the store and pick them up an hour later. It's cool!

♥ Eat celery, tart fresh cherries, and cheese
♥ Avoid animal proteins, soft drinks, jams & jellies, gravy, candy, and foods containing sucrose
♥ Drink lots of water! Coffee may be good, too.

I hope you feel better rapidly!
