Rob’s Feet

Filed under: Health — alwayswithme @ 2:46 am

Rob saw Dr. P on November 7, 2006.  We are to return in 2007 for additional X-Rays.  Dr. P is no longer taking on new clients with this disorder but he will continue to see Rob until such time as a new situation occurs.  He will then refer us to another doctor.


Kidney Stone

Filed under: Health — alwayswithme @ 2:44 am

Ever had a kidney stone?  I have and it was no fun.  After it passed, I found out it was a calcium oxyalate stone – most  common.  I am to avoid tea, chocolate, spinach, liver, strawberries and soybeans.  I should also remember to always keep well hydrated.  Lemonade is good for me.  My next appointment with Dr. P is November 5, 2007.  At that time I will be X-Rayed and if all is well, then I should just need a checkup every five years.  My last appointment was on November 5, 2006.
