I have had a swollen big toe joint
for some years now.
Diagnosed as gouty, arthritis it has
About mid June, in Banff, it was particularly painful.
At day’s end I discovered I had developed
a blister which had burst.
I think it qualifies as swollen.
More important is to get it healed in seven weeks
prior to Number 1 Son’s wedding.
If not healed I may be going to
the wedding barefoot as
even sneakers are not comfortable.
