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.
