Moms, Doctors, and Toe Trucks
Go Out! So I expected to go to the door but she ignored me.
Well, that's what it sounded like. She said it's something that hit her when quit taking hormone replacement as she was worried about cancer risk. She doesn't eat much meat and she doesn't drink beer at all, just a small glass of wine before dinner sometimes. Excessive meat and alcohol can sometimes cause Go Out! but not with the amounts she has so the doctor first thought that she'd broken a bone in her foot. When that was ruled out he ran blood tests. It was Go Out! The doc said that happens sometimes when women go into Men-O-Pause (does Dad know about the pausing thing?)
The main drugs they give for this she can't take due to kidney issues so she just has to put up with it till her toe deflates.
Her whole foot is swollen and red and it makes her cry.
I suggested calling a toe truck. Mom did not find that funny.
Go Out! is apparently REALLY painful and she cried more when she had to walk to the bathroom.
I will be glad Dad is home from Texas tonight.
