Mom's appointment with the doctor went pretty well today. The doctor referred Mom to a podiatrist for her pain in her feet. She said it could be arthritis or it could be something that requires some sort of orthotic. Mom did pretty well mobility-wise. We have a transport chair that we use from the car to the doctor's office and that helps a lot. It also helped that the sun was out and the temperature was mild. I think Mom made the nurse's week; she told her she was beautiful.

On the way to the appointment we saw a herd of white tail deer in a field near the road. They were ready to bolt across the road and as soon as we passed them, they did. Luckily the cars behind us stopped for them. They looked very well fed. Mom was worried about them making it across the road safely.

Sounds like the Dr. appt was uneventful. That's good. Hope the podiatrist appt will get to the bottom of things!

Robyn, I mentioned in the other post about having her toenails checked. Sometimes just the length or thickness can cause pressure that makes their feet hurt. Hope the podiatrist is able to help your mom.

Good idea. One toenail is pretty bad. I trimmed the rest on New Years day after her shower (woo hoo!). She may need shoes that offer more support too.
