Tom, Tom, Tom......

Men will be men as we all know all too well.

About a month ago, maybe 5 weeks, he got out of bed quickly thinking he could still walk like he was 25 and must have pulled his achilees tendon.  So he's been limping around not saying anything about it until this past week.

Duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh HELLO!  I urged him to see his doc and he did this past Monday who was going to refer him to another doc. 

Well, remember the last time he was going to refer him to the cardiologist????  We still haven't got THAT appointment yet.  So I said "Tom call Dr O'Malley when you get home Monday" and lo and behold he DID. 

Dr O saw Tom today and said yep it may be ruptured, wear this soft bootie and let's get an MRI.  He has an MRI appt on Sunday (of all times) at 9:30am.  From there we'll see if he needs surgery.

Now I'm on my way to the pharmacy to meet him to purchase the crutches.

Lovely, just lovely.

If you don't watch yourself a sudden fall, or even a twist or jerk, can result in a massive injury at an older age.  Ha.  I surely hope this one does not require surgery.  The surgeon him self can even become a hazard as time marches on.  Gerry
