A Glimmer of Hope
I have been gone all week at thet A.C.E. Administrator's and Supervisor's Training. I got up at 5 a.m every morning and wasn't home until after 7 every evening. It was a tiring week and a lot of information was given to us to help our school. On Wednesday of this week, I took a day off from training to go to the rheumatologist with Robert. He seemed to have every confidence that this gout can go away. Obviously, it can't be cured. He is attacking agressively with meds. And then in about a week, he wants Rob in physical therapy to start moving and using his foot again. Ok, I came home yesterday, my last day of training by the way. Well, not really home, but to my mother-in-love's home because she cooked supper for us. Anyway, yesterday was Rob's first day on his new meds. I looked at his foot and the swelling looked like it was down. That was good, but seen that already. When we got ready to leave, I glanced over at him and he had 2, count 'em, 2 shoes on! I was so excited. I cannot tell you how high my heart leaped when I saw that. Of course he said it hurts like crazy to take it off, but HE CAN GET IT ON! I pray that it continues to get well. Today it looks good also. These new meds can cause his sugar levels to go up so please continue to pray for him.
