Hi everyone!  Just letting you know about the doctor appointment yesterday.

I had a feeling I should call and check on the scans, make sure they were
there.  The tech had assured me that they would be in the doctor's office by
Friday.  Guess what...they weren't.  The nurse tells me that she'll get a
copy of the written report and the doctor can go from that.  Guess what...he
couldn't.  So, I have no answers, just another appointment a week from
Monday and he's talking about cortisone injections to see if they help.
They didn't the last time.

From the report, which the doctor read to me, it points to the damage being
in the ankle joint.  He still seems to feel the subtala (spelled wrong I
know) joint is involved.  Without the scans, he couldn't tell.  So, I'm
frustrated and a little angry and don't know what to do next.  I want this
over with so badly.  I've put several things on hold because of all this.
The rheumatologist said he felt it would need fused, and sent me to the
orthopedic doctor for a second opinion.  It seems the longer this goes on,
the further from it being over I get.  (Ok, so it's not good English, but
I'm mad).

So, think I'll go veg on the couch and watch movies all day.
