Today I went to the podiatrist to confer about my continuing foot pain. I had surgery on it two months ago and I am in more pain now than before. The doc told me the surgery didn't work. I am shock, I think. His next suggestion will elicit a roar from people who know me personally, wear shoes with an inch and a half heels. That's like going in drag.

He gave me a couple of shots in each foot. I could have gone through life without experiencing this medical procedure cus it REALLY hurts! This is the 5th time I have done it. So with any luck or maybe I should light a candle (anyone know who the patron saint of feet would be?) then I will get through a couple of museums in DC without crying my eyes out in front of all the other tourists. If not, you will know who I am on the mall, weeping away. Too bad they don't have little scooters to take around the museums. This gives me an excuse to sit in front a Dutch painting or two for a long while.

The doctor said to wear heels?!? Ouch. I'm so sorry you're still suffering through this. Is the surgery something that could be repeated -- and, one would hope, successful?

he can't repeat it because he cut a ligament that now is toast. There are other surgeries though. yeah.
