I can barely move. Something is wrong with my left heel.
You're moving and you can barely move. Not a good combination.

Normally I chuckle at Jimmy's zingers, not this time. Do you have the help you need ?

Rhody... concerned...

I'm sorry if I seem callous.

Hey, is that a reference to my heels?

I wonder if I broke a bone when I had that serious fall last month? It does look a bit swollen. It's the back of my heel, just below the ankle.

I massaged my heel last night pretty well, hoping that the pain would end the pain and I would wake up painless.

Nope.

Evo,

Turbo is right see a doctor, you could have a bad bruise, chipped the bone or damaged the tendon(s) (i.e. sprain). If it is a chip you should be able to move the chip, however.

Ha, that makes me almost as bad as Jimmy, now, doesn't it ? My differential diagnosis is worth well, the price of the electrons it was typed on, not much. Heal quickly Evo... you know we care even if we poke you now and then.

Rhody... :blushing:

I am connected at the new place. The painter apprently thought it would be clever to fill the cable outlet with paint. I'm amazed that it's working after I scraped the paint out.

Movers are not here yet.

Whereever you go, there you are. Are you in Kansas anymore?

Do you have to be out of your old apartment today? Hopefully you'll have a place to sleep tonight. :uhh:

ugh. yeah, the bad news is that some achilles injuries can be very bad. the good news is that a lot of mild tendon inflammation is now being treated with a simple eccentric exercise regimen. but in the meantime, an epsom salt foot bath might reduce a bit of the inflammation.

No, I have few days. Furniture is moved and I'm in excrutiating pain.

This is actually something that has been going on for at least a year, but this is the worst prolonged occurance. No one knows what the cause is. There are many related problems, I'm pretty sure it is neurological.

Thanks for caring. My mother used to use epsome salt foot baths for sore feet all of the time, I wish I had some.

Right now I can barely move.

I wish I could give you some medical advice, Evo, but that's the domain of an orthopedic appointment. I encourage you to keep to the computer this weekend -- no "feats" of strength. The Emergency Room is always there if you do need it (or if you have generous insurance).

The "happy thoughts" aimed at my heel seem to be helping. I'd now like to ask that happy thoughts be sent to my hips and tummy.

Evo Child was going to come over and help but is going to a party instead. I can't bend forward or lift things. :frown:

I moving things by packing a tiny cooler on wheels and rolling it back and forth. At this rate it will be december before I get everything moved. :cry:

Send old Evo happy thoughts, please!

Next door?

Next time, just sneak out during the night, and switch the numbers on the apartments. They'll never know the difference.

I've got to buy a nice gift for the couple upstairs at my new place. Yesterday she brought me a hot cup of flavored coffe during the move. Then after the movers left, she came over with a bottle of wine so I could have some and unwind. The wine is great. She and her husband are nature lovers like me and we both support the wildlife in the ravine. :tongue2:

She's older than I am and she also fell recently and has trouble moving, so we can commiserate. I'm back next door to the nice young guy. The new old place feels like I never left. I'd forgotten how roomy it was.

No empty space left inside, filled up with THE BEST thoughts I could find.
