Richard in Hospital

This is just a quick fly-by post to let you all know the latest.

I took Richard to the VA hospital yesterday to the outpatient clinic because his hand has been swollen and painful.  Looooong story short: it is gout caused by his heart meds causing problems for his kidneys.  They will keep him in a few days to get his meds balanced.

The long story involves lots of waiting for hours and hours.  We left here around noon and I didn’t get home until after 1 am.  I am headed back to the hospital now — it is about an hour’s drive.  Will post more tonight if I get back at a decent hour.

    I’d like to say – what Jeanne said. It’s not only raining rain, now it’s raining health problems. 😦

    And please give Richard a big, but very gentle, hug from me. And I hope, hope hope it will all be better soon.
