Sitting in the podiatrists office, on the big chair, after having my heel stretched a bit and prodded a bit, after being tickled by the spiky thing that checked for numbness, the podiatrist reached for the doppler, squirted some gel on my feet and checked blood flow.
Whoosh-knock-whoosh-knock-whoosh-knock. Only one heartbeat. Mine.
I need to do more exercises to ease the plantar fasciitis, I have flat feet, I need shoe inserts made, arthritis is getting a grip on both big toe joints and one second toe joint.
Only one heartbeat. Mine.
Oooh- I know, honey. The first time I had an ultrasound after we lost Kai, I cried from the sound alone. 2 months ago, Alan had one He cried, too.ReplyDelete
sooooo not cool. ((hugs))ReplyDelete
Oh no. A strange place indeed. Hugs.ReplyDelete
I hope your feet feel better soon. xx
Big hugs, Barb xoReplyDelete
My heart drops... Sending hugs...ReplyDelete
Look out!! Here comes a sucker punch to your face!! Sigh. Why isn't there ever a warning?? Indeed, a weird place for that.ReplyDelete
My heart drops too! What a great way to put that. That's exactly how I felt when I read the first part...one heartbeat. UGH!
Wow, that came out of left field. So sorry you have to endure these firsts...ReplyDelete
Yeah, wouldn't see that coming... Sorry that you received such an unexpected reminder.ReplyDelete
stupid spurs! I get those too. well since I had my custom orthodics made for my flat feet I really don't notice the spurs as much anymore. yay me!ReplyDelete
It's just that I can't wear my shoes around the house, that's not comfortable. so I will often twist my ankle while getting up from the toilet and so on...
Hope you can get those orthodics quick!! oh and I have flat feet too...oh man just sitting here at my computer and I twisted my ankle!! grr...it hurts.
Just when you thought the podiatrist's office was a neutral place...ReplyDelete
Ugh, I'm so sorry.
The strangest places/things can be reminders. Thinking of you.ReplyDelete
I still freeze anytime I hear that whoosh-knock sound. I'm sorry that hit so unexpectedly. Your always in my thoughts.ReplyDelete
