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 good...in 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.

Sorry to hear that, John. In a bizarre coincidence, Mr FB got the same diagnosis today.

I hope they can do something to help you.

    I'm digging the early fall temperatures. I know we've got a heatwave or two to go still but this is a nice start to the month.

    I just can't go to a big event yet. I'd be so stressed that I wouldn't have fun.

    hehe It's the second book in the series about Zoey, but to be honest, I found the humour in this second book a bit too much for my taste. That said, absolutely crazy stuff happens in this one (not…

    Well, at GenCon they're checking peoples' vaccination status and actually administering vax doses (I guess Indiana Health or some such?) and people are wearing vax bracelets showing their condition…
