Update on my foot
Well, I had my appointment with the podiatrist today, I do indeed have plantar fasciiatis. In fact it looks like I have had this problem for a while, I have a pretty bad case of it. My tissue is very thick on the bottom of my foot which indictes that I have had irritation from this for a long time. I also have a pretty large bone spur. It was pretty wild to see this piece of bone sticking out where it shouldn't have on the x-ray. So, long and short, I most likely don't need surgery for the bone spur (yeah!) but, I do need to get orthodics for my feet. Unfortunately, insurance doesn't cover them and they are about $300.00. I guess they're cheaper than surgery but eesh, I make a resolution to pay off debt and get ahead financially and the bills pour in. First it was the doctors bills from having Tank, then a bunch of our electronics broke and now I need to spend money on arch support. Yippee. I guess it's only money but it sure would be nice if I could save some and not just spend it all on things breaking (myself included!).
