Plantar Fascitis

PS: I forgot to mention Carol has painful plantar fascitis, which is why I miss rubbing her feet.

More Glasse

     I dropped my current pair of glasses and broke them, too.  I asked Carol for help getting glasses and picking out frames, since she is femme enough.  She wound up doing that while I was away for a writing day.  Carol said it took her longer than she had expected to do that.  I would like her to have more time to do her own art, which is photography.
     I had a problem with headaches.  Carol figured out I was taking too many ibuprophen and making them worse.  She sure is smart.
     I am having a recurring problem with tendonitis in my thumb (mouse hand).  I have a brace that helps with that.  I miss giving Carol foot rubs.
     While my friend Dick is laid up after knee surgery, my other friend, Rose, has been giving me rides to the gym.  She also helped me fill out the form to apply for the Access van.  Another standing date for the gym, Nancy, can’t do it, next week, so Mary standing in (or driving in).
     The present moment is cozy.

More Successful Dentist Visit

     My friend Alice read the posting about the fact my dentist had referred me to someone outside my plan to fill some cavities using nitrous oxide.  She checked and found out her dentist, who she likes a lot, Dr. Marashi, is on my plan.  Alice’s father was a dentist, so that is a topic she is picky about.
     When I had gone to my dentist she had tried me out with a bite block, a plastic piece that keeps my mouth open.  If that had worked, I wouldn’t need laughing gas.  I had trouble keeping it in.
     At Dr. Marashi’s, he tried me on a bite block.  For some reason it was more successful.  Probably my Haldol was kicking in better.  So, I can go back to my dentist to fill the cavity.  Dr. Marashi also said the cavity is so small it is too early to fill it.  That was even better news.
     The present moment is sunny.
