The Rheumatologist Appt

I took trash and recycling out first and got there with extra time. There was a handicapped spot available, so I had time to almost finish 12/28's WashPost before my appointment. I showed her the new bump and she said it could be gout, but as long as it doesn't hurt, we're not going to worry about it. My uric acid is down, but not as much as she'd like, so if it doesn't go down with the February labs, she'll increase the allopurinal again.

I'm down three more pounds, to 319. That's 39 pounds since the beginning of 2007.

Since my appt was so late, I drove partway home and stopped at Carabbas and had dinner -- a house salad, bread with olive oil & herbs, and a margherita pizza. I brought half the pizza and most of the bread home. I left there at 5:30pm and the rush hour had definitely declined and it was a quick trip home.
