I'm Back Online, Gout Better --
Yes, after three weeks, my computer is back online (yippee!).
And my gout has subsided a great deal. To the left you can see what my foot currently looks like.
It isn't great by any means . . . but it is so much better than it was! And the swelling has really gone down a lot.
Yes, it still hurts, but not nearly the way it did (I was more-or-less zonked out with painkillers).
For those fortunate enough to have never had it, be thankful. When full-blown, even the air is excruciatingly painful.
But I'm feeling much much better . . . and I most sincerely thank you all for the many kind words I have received from you.
