|The splint I was given to help|
with my foot. I was to wear it
at night. I almost fainted when
I saw my insurance has to pay
$225.00 for it.
Update: The pain is slowly subsiding with the help of my physical therapist. Has me working on a few exercises as well as working on my foot during therapy visits. I can now work at the framing gallery for a few hours at at time and not have to crawl to the car to head home. In another two weeks I will visit the doctor once again to report my progress. I will keep you informed after that.
Second update: Returned to the doctor once again for a followup. We talked and I told her it was much better, but still not the way I was hoping it would be. She gave the the option of another injection, more visits to the physical therapist or a combination of both. I chose the last one and received another shot. Didn't even feel this one. Told me that was because I didn't have the inflammation in my foot anymore. Was able to walk from the car to the baseball field to watch another of my grandson's ball games without any pain. Hoping all is well once again. Life is marvelous, but getting older is hell! It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.
