Hand & Leg
Lots of action at the doc's this morning. The leg seems better although you couldn't tell it by me. The pain is still there and it's still red and raw. The doc had an ultrasound done to check for a clot. Hopefully, we'll know later this afternoon. For the time being I've got to keep it covered with moisturizing lotion. She had about a half dozen x-rays taken of the hand to check for arthritis. I'll be taking ibuprofen to take care of any inflammation and a side effect probably will be lessening the pain in the leg. I'm, also, using a carpal tunnel brace to see if it will help. And there is another problem. My blood pressure is still high. She doubled my prescription to bring it down. For some good news, I'm losing weight. Don't know if that's from battling the infection or just eating less.
