Saturday Fred woke up and he was limping, as the day went on it got progressively worse.  Near 9PM he could barely move.  We went to the ER.  The ER doc diagnosed it as a sprained foot, with a "possible" stress fracture.

We went to CVS to fill his Lortab (and I was able to use a coupon for a Free $10 gift card with new or transferred prescription from Target - did you know CVS accepts competitors Pharmacy coupons?  Now you do)

Sunday we stayed in in the AM, we went to church in the afternoon for Fred's Bible Institute, but he was in so much pain that we left before the evening service.  Pain got worse, foot began to swell, knee too.

Monday follow up with ortho.  Absolutely NO broken bones.  They drew a significant amount of cloudy yellow synovial fluid from his knee, sent us to the hospital for blood work.  Suspected gout.  Got a script for an NSAID.  Went to Target Pharmacy and just asked if they had any of those coupons hanging around, they did, so I got a $10 gift card there - used it to buy TP we needed.

Fred dozed on and off all day yesterday, and was on the couch from 2 PM to 10 AM today.  He was finally able to bear a little weight on it and hobble to the bathroom.  Dr. called, lab work came back.  It isn't gout.  Not sure what it is.

Fred and Lydia have been switching off every day with leftovers, yesterday he has spaghetti and she had salisbury steak, today he had salisbury steak and she had spaghetti. 

I shipped out a package yesterday of 12 month clothes that I sold on ebay.  I was bummed that I only got $7.99 for it, but it's more than I had!  :)

Still earning Amazon GC's on Swagbucks and Irazoo and "buying" stuff we need.  Thankful for the ability!

Hopefully Fred will be feeling well enough to make it to Bible Institute tomorrow!
