It is really beautiful out right now.(2 AM). I went out and shoveled my sidewalk and the snow was coming down so fast, I made tracks while I was coming back in. I salted the sidewalk, too.
The snowflakes are large, and coming down really fast.

Please tell me that it's 2 a.m. and you just woke up from a dream that you shoveled the sidewalk!!!!!!!!!!

My foot hurts too bad to kick your ass. Guess I'm going to have to send Jean to do it. You better be skerd! This is lightweight work for Miss Jean!

Got meat?

I just read on Webmd that a doctor is using shock wave treatment for that. I wonder if a tens unit would give relief?
That's a good thought. We have a tens unit. I think mom has it right now. It's worth a try. The doc said stretch my foot (as if) and wear supportive shoes. I may try to tape it today. I found a website that shows how to tape your foot if you have FP. I don't think I have athletic tape -- maybe some left from son's hockey days. If not, DUCK TAPE. It's how we roll down south.

I tried Marley's idea of freezing a water bottle and rolling my foot over it. Holy cow!

Ice! On the bottom of your foot!

To look at that sidewalk now you would think I dreamed about shoveling it. The flakes coming down now are teensy.

Duck tape it really thick. Go to the salt mines. Moan loudly--several times. Announce that you have PF and Must go home.

Well, I finally broke down and went to the doctor about my foot.
I have .... drum roll please .....
plantar fasciitis.
I think that's fancy talk for hurt foot.
I hate to say I .........
But I told you so.
I feel bad for ya girl. It hurts like crazy!
To me, it feels like a terrible bruise.
I took the prednisone pills. My body aches felt better, and the foot does feel better than it did. But now that I am done with the prednisone my body aches have returned, the bottom of my heel is still tender. There is no way I could walk on it for an eight hour day, or do yard work.
I go Thursday for the dreaded cortisone shot. "shudder"
Did your Dr. suggest a shot?

I am glad your body pains felt better, at least for a while. I wish that heel would heal.
Tell the doctor to freeze it with the aerosol freeze they keep, you won't feel the shot so much.
I miss you.

Don't bip me, Jean. Please don't bip me.---But, the shoveling and salting worked. I have the cleanest sidewalk in the 'hood.
We sure didn't get much of a storm, for all the storm warnings we were getting.

It wasn't worth risking life and limb to be out in the dark, in the freezing, cold in the middle of the night, inflicting more pain on yourself.

I Did that, initially, then something just forced me to go get the shovel. Then something forced me to go get the salt.
The salt really worked. When I woke up, there was an inch or two of snow on the sidewalk, but it melted off. Everything else is still covered.
