Now it's Mom!

Took Mom back to the doctor at 8:30 this morning because her infected foot was not better and still hurting bad enough for her to take pain meds....that's bad because she does NOT take pain meds ever. He wanted to put her in the hospital for IV meds, but she really didn't want that. She got another shot. As my brother was having lunch with our cousin, a urologist, he was telling our cousin about Mom's foot. Urologist cousin wanted to see her foot, so I went and got her and brought her back to my town to see him. He operated on it and told her it would get well now that he had relieved the pressure by removing a callous. She feels better already, but, of course, her foot is still dead from the surgery. I got her back home and on her bed with her foot elevated. I believe she will get well now!! It's wonderful having doctors in the family...even if he is a urologist. I told him he could add foot surgeon to his resume' now!!
