I went to the “better” podiatrist today to get my CT scan results and maybe, just maybe, some relief for my left ankle.

Ha, ha,ha!

What’s that old chestnut? Be careful of what you wish for, for you will surely get it!

I saw my CT scan and how seemingly overwhelming the tendonopothy was in the shot. To add insult to injury, I have to go for a surgical consultation, as the growth of the tendonopothy have forced two of my bones to push out of the way where they should be.  You have got to be freaking kidding me. I went through treatment for this one time, complete with physical therapy.

The biggest insult was when the podiatrist recommended a surgeon who works out of Rothman Institute, the people who started the mess on my knees.  If they where cocktail waiters, they’d go around offering,”Cortisone, anyone?”

My next step is to see how much mileage I can get out of the cortisone shot he gave me today. Then, I will figure out what my next step will be.

Hold a good thought for me, as this is not what me and my girls need.


Curse or blessing?

I have a Tuesday appointment with the doctor to be seen with my bum hip.I have to have an x-ray of the hip to take with me.

In the meantime, I have read over the possible diagnosis, according to my buddy Matt, who was my Physician’s Assistant**sorry Kate** when I got my knees done.As I am not crawling now, I am assuming my hip is not fractured**fingers crossed** but merely bursitis.


Two inch needle, spray to freeze area, insert steroid-I remember the drill oh so well from my knee days.Here’s hoping the hip fairs a little better.

Greg to the rescue


We weren’t able to get to the Vet for the furgirls medicine, but my nephew Greg was available,
God Bless him.

The girls are having reactions to getting bit, so we were somewhat frustrated and watching
them scratch. The Vet said to get them on cortisone to calm the itch.

Greg and I are going to rendezvous to get the medicine transferred for the girls.

What a hero I have for a Godson!

Thanks, Greg!
