Doctor Day in the Land of Tipple
This was one of those days when both Sandi and I had doctor deals going on. Makes for a long day--especially when my old enemy insomnia is back.
Sandi was first up this morning with her foot doctor. Her right angle continues to hurt her a lot and is showing no sign of getting better. While she is still to wear the ankle air cast while at work, he has put her in some sort of heavy strap on boot for the rest of the time. This is the same leg she had knee surgery on last October so I am rather concerned that the boot weight will do something to her knee and cause a new problem. This apparently is a possibility though one hopes not. The sad truth is her ankle is not getting any better so now she has to go into the heavy boot as much as possible so that the ankle has more stability. In two weeks he will see her again.
In my case this afternoon was the calcium screening test. I had been told last week that there would be some sort of injection. That was not done as there is no injection for this deal. The test consisted of me being moved back and forth on the table while the machine spun above me and I was told to breathe and not breathe. The hard part was being on the table with my hands above my head. Fortunately, after about ten minutes, I was done. Results will take a few days and they will call me when they have them.
