Monner's     Mumblings

Don and Dan and a Singer

OK, quickly now! My foot is fine. I no longer need bandages, anti-biotic ointments or a wooden soled shoe. My podiatrist gave permission to return to my previous life. Of course, she wants to see me in three months, which will be after the first of the year and I can start my health insurance deductible all over again. My new construction job is getting interesting. The entire job was supposed to last two weeks. I’ve been there two weeks, and it looks like I will need to be there at least another six weeks. It has turned out to be a great job. As you remember, I am adding windows in a fitness center. (Or at least, that is what I’m supposed to be doing.) This fitness center is direct

Twenty Years

If you are reading today hoping for an update on my foot, thank you. Unfortunately, I don’t have much to report. As my foot continues to heal, it is wrapped with gauze and an “ace” bandage. Personally, I believe the foot is healed, however, the podiatrist has ordered me to keep the foot bandaged until she looks at my foot this coming Wednesday.

This past week, I had my first, last and hopefully only appointment with my infectious disease doctor. Until last Tuesday, my contact with this doctor is from his nurse calling me on the phone. The infectious disease doctor is the guy that analyzes my blood tests and prescribes the antibiotics to fight my infection. He might have been the most important member of my “team”. For some reason, still unknown to me, the doctor asked to see me in his office. The day before the appointment, the doctor’s receptionist called to

A Wooden Shoe and Clumper

Of course, we’re all wondering how my foot is doing. Well, it is getting better. I will see the infectious disease doc, Tuesday, with the hope of being taken off IV antibiotics. Wednesday, I have an appointment with the podiatrist, I am hoping to be allowed to wear a shoe on my right foot again. Oh, I have been allowed to wear a shoe, a very special shoe. It has a solid wooden sole and a couple of Velcro straps. The Idea is to keep my toes from bending. The shoe is thicker than any of my other shoes making me about an inch taller on my right side. Did I mention it clumps? Yep, every step I take with my right foot sounds like a horse on pavement. Every day, including Saturday and Sunda
