It’s been a busy 24 hours. Yesterday I went to a doctor about my ankle. They did an x-ray and he thinks I may need to have surgery again.
I’m going out this afternoon for a CAT scan because of a gray area he was concerned about. Then I guess I’ll make another appointment with him to see what he says. At least I got a new boot. Those things fall apart fast and are very expensive. My insurance has not been very helpful.
I just got back from taking both dogs to the vet. They have secondary infections, and Charlie has tonsillitis. They were not happy campers to get shots.
When they brought a new boot in for me yesterday, I could tell it was one that went up to the knee. So when they came back to put it on, I asked if I could drive in it.
The doctor heard me from the hall and came around the corner and said I could not drive in any boot. Well, I have been. I don’t have any choice. I’ve tried doing the brake with my left foot, but I’m terribly clumsy at it.
I told him I didn’t have any other choice right now. So they gave me the shorter boot like I already had, because I can bend my knee better in it. And said all this was at my own risk. Well, I realize this. I wish things could be different.
You never think when you’re young that you will come to a point where you have no idea who is going to be around to help you out when push comes to shove.
Heavens, there’s a college student who went home and shot and killed his parents and 17 year old sister because he owed a loan shark $3000.
I just got the book “The Sociopath Next Door.” I just can’t conceive of actions like this. But it happens all the time.
