Just Sitting…

Today’s programme of events was similar to yesterday’s, apart from cutting out the thinking.

I’m still suffering from a swollen foot, the result of spending too much time sitting. Unfortunately, as a result of the pain and swelling, I’m spending a lot of time sitting down to rest it, which makes things worse.

Despite elevation and massage it is refusing to deflate. I’ve considered jabbing it with a knife to drain it but my record of self-treatment, and the last remnants of common sense, indicate that this would be a bad idea.

I’m hoping that after the appointment tomorrow it will be full speed ahead and everything will be OK by the end of next week. Considering what happened last time I went to hospital I’m not convinced.

That’s about all I can come up with for the moment. Apart from my dignity and mobility I seem to have lost my sense of humour and my ability to put words together. This might be a good time to apologise for the limited subject matter and lack of photographs.

All I have left is my desire to post every day.

Time for an antibiotic now. I just dropped it down the side of the chair, so this might involve grumbling and bad language.

    I suffer from swollen feet but the doctor improved it a great deal by changing my blood pressure tablets. I can improve mine by putting the leg up on a recliner but exercise also helps because the muscles get better at pumping the liquid away. If you can walk a little every hour or half hour, that ought to help lessen the swelling.

      Yes, they did warn me about the blood pressure medication when they changed it last year. It looks like exercise might be the answer. It will be good to get out.

    Don’t forget that antibiotics do have a tendency to make us depressed and very tired. Once the course of tablets finishes you should begin to feel a little brighter. 🙂
