A Fall From Health

Today is the first day of Autumn.

Appropriate, since my life has just entered a bad stage of Fall-ing....

This afternoon I had my doctor's appointment to get the results of the peripheral arterial ultrasound. The news is not actual fact, it's very bad.

I have a bad case of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). My feet and lower legs have a rather high rate of blockage that I'm not going to mention here, and are accounting for the various symptoms I've had the last few monthsyears.

The doctor said I need to see a vascular surgeon as soon as possible.

Let's just say it's been a bad day.

And I'm going to go and lie down with my feet up. But first I need to make a cuppa.
