It's official -- I'm a gimp.

So I went to the doctor today about my toe, and they still don't have any idea what's wrong. The nurse gave me a referral to a podiatrist, but hopefully it'll be better by the time they make that appointment. Nurse-lady thought it might be gout, but since I'm not a 60-year-old man, she's decided on a second opinion. They're making me ice my foot and take 800mg of Motrin 3 x's a day. That's 12 pills a day, man! Arg!

So I'm home with my foot on this ice pack from my Pyrex Portable :



And watching tv. My foot will not be keeping me from Thai food and A Very Long Engagement with Adrian, which is what my plans are tonight. The nurse told me that my neurological appointment for my headaches is tomorrow, but I never got any paperwork for it so I don't know where. We'll have to see if it can be rescheduled because I can't get my head scanned if I don't know where I'm supposed to be. Are you going to scan my head? If so, are you going to be able to tell me what's wrong with me?

Wow, you are falling apart aren't you? I hope all gets better and I hope you don't kill yourself half-way through "A Very Long Engagement". You'll see, well, maybe.

Sounds fun! I will remember to step on your foot (including your big toe!) tomorrow at work. =)
