Miggy & I , What A Pair !


Hope everyone is having a good week so far . It is a long weekend this weekend and the weather is to  be quite nice .

I went to  my doctor today  to have my left foot checked. My left foot has been swelling for some time now to the point were it feels like it will burst and my toes look like little sausages . It isn't painful just annoying cause my shoes don't fit  properly on my foot and it does throb once in a while . He checked my calf to make sure there wasn't any hardness or pain in my calf . There wasn't but he didn't want to take the chance and sent me to get an ultrasound of my leg to see if I have a blood clot or not . Good news no blood clot . Then I went to get my left knee and foot x-rayed as it may be caused by arthritis in my knee he said it could be what's making my foot swell , so I am now waiting to hear what the x-rays show, other then that I am on inflammatory meds that will help till they find  out why my foot is swelling and what's causing it. 

The weather has been beautiful warm and sunny with cool breezes , despite my foot I did some weeding anyways. I cant sit around and do nothing just cause my foot is swollen .

Miggy and I are a good pair now what with her left knee the past week or so and my left foot . She is doing well so far , it has been hard to keep her from dashing around that's for sure since there are a lot of squirrels, bunny’s and stray cats to chase but she is learning that when mum and dad say NO LEAVE IT ! we mean LEAVE IT ! So Miggy and I are both on inflammatory meds .  Hey not much keeps us down that's for sure !

Sorry to read you are having problems, I can talk about foot-swelling and knee problems 'til the cows come home !
Hopefully the meds will help with the swelling, and maybe a fluid pill.
Poor Miggy, it's hard to keep a good girl down :)
Yes, you said these were the Golden Years...I think I've gone straight to the Rusty Years :)

Sorry about your foot but Miggy seems to understand! Getting older isn't always great but hey, makes us be more creative in what we do. Take care of the foot!

Ah, yes, that getting older thing. :\ I know quite a bit about it. :\ But, I just find something to do while sitting down.

I'm sorry you are hurting. It's no fun at all when you are used to doing so much.

I have been having swelling in my ankles. The Bennie said it was from sitting at the computer all day.( hate it when he is right) I am doing my family genelogy and so many people to research.Think I will go put my feet up.
Hope you both get good reports.
