My old original thread , A little about me and mine,
It brought back good, sad and bad memories

Dad went for an xray on his foot today
I dont know why the gp only arranged to have one foot
Though one foot is much worse than the other , the other foot is still very painful and swells up
but we will deal with that when we see gp again
the x ray showed that the joint had fused. she said that she didnt know how dad was managing to walk
as the pain must be awful
she said she would mark the results as urgent for the gp
When Dad got up today, he said he had heard on the radio
that their was something going on at Birchington including a dog show , would I like o go
He phoned the radio programme, the first time he was told the host would give it out again , he didnt, I looked whats on in Birchington and got nothing useful
he phoned them again and was told their was something going on at minnis bay
So these two big grown up kids (86 and 60 yrs) went and spent a nice
I went with Dad to gp yesterday
Dad had has had pain in both feet, both swollen swelling going up to his calf
Typically when dad got up both feet were much improved, their was still some discolouration and all the pain but most of the swelling had gone dowm
Only the other week his allopurinol for gout had been increased at my request, then this trouble started
anyway gp had a good look at his worst foot
I asked if it could still be gout
Today when I got up I found an opened letter on my chair
I assumed wrongly it was for me
It was from dads bank
a yearly thing they do about their overdraft facility
saying his was due to run out and if he wanted to increase this they would need to do credit check blah blah blah
dad has only ever had one very short term loan in his life, he believes in saving up for things
and doesnt believe in overdrafts or credit cards
