Hallux Rigidus

.
Hallux rigidus at the first metatarsophanlangeal joint

Old woman's shoes suggested by the orthopedic surgeon_____

                                                  The nerve!!

Oh!! Shucks my driving toe...

                                   
                                  It hurts to drive~~~

                                                          He says to let the toe rest stay off of it.....

The fix for right now_
          
                               Injection of Kenalog(a steriod)...

PAIN, AGONY and DESPAIR.....

                                              Horrible!!

Old age has its pit falls...

                                          Someday though I will shed this body of clay

I'll have a new body, Praise the Lord, I'll have a new life...

    Yes old age really stinks sometimes! I haven't gotten all the old age signs except for the memory loss, sometimes I can't remember what I was going to do, why I went into that room, sometimes I can't remember the key word within the sentence I'm saying! But it isn't that bad, it doesn't happen THAT often! I'd say it's common amongst anyone my age! I really enjoyed reading this illustrious poem this evening! What an outstanding piece my friend! Great work!!
