Family visits and painful feet
It's a cold, rainy day in Southern California, but the weather isn't keeping my spirits down. Tonight my mom gets into town, and I'm really excited to see her. It's funny because I'm looking forward to doing things with her that in the past I never really cared about (grocery shopping, cooking, etc). I guess absence really does make the heart grow fonder.
On a slightly "bummier" note, my foot (actually, my Achilles tendon) has been really flaring up lately. Went to the doctor yesterday and he basically gave me the same treatment as before (anti-inflammatory meds as needed, icing twice a day, and no flat shoes (not even around the house)). He also told me that if the pain continues, I will have to have an MRI, and may have to wear a walking cast until we can get the pain and inflammation down. The cast isn't the most exciting news, but at this point I'm willing to wear it if it will get my foot on the road to recovery. I'll keep you guys posted. Enjoy your Saturday!
