I spent the morning at the emergency room with Mike. He had suffered with swollen and painful feet though last summer. It finally went away, but then came back this past few days. He was in such agony last night that he decided to go to have the situation checked out. After three hours and numerous test, including one for Lyme disease (results will take a couple of weeks for that one), we were informed that he has swollen feet that are painful. Hmm. That was the exact complaint he gave when we checked in. I just wonder how much it will cost to confirm his (non-medical) opinion. So now he has one more drug added to his list of the other ten. At least it is just short term.
He gives me funny looks when I suggest Reiki or Qi Gong. Could either possibly be less effective than "modern medicine"?
