the hobbled foot update

It’s been a little over a week since my last trip to urgent care, and since I got the bill for it in the mail yesterday, I figured I’d share an update. And also ask if my hospital bill can be considered a tax write off since the reason I was in the hospital was due to charity. I think I may have a case here!

In any case, I’m not in as much pain as I was a week ago. I only wear the cast at work, but I try to keep it elevated when I’m at home. I called yesterday and made an appointment in about two more weeks with my podiatrist. I figure I’ll either have her check out my foot if it still hurts, or she can take care of my toenail that’s sure to be ready to fall off by then. I always have something for my podiatrist to look into.

Tomorrow I head to the East Coast, where I will romp in the rain of a hurricaine and hope that I can make it to at least one Twins game that’s not rained out. The Yankees should have a dome. All the cool teams have one, right?

We went to Town Talk Diner last night. It was only my second time there, but I think I could write and write and write about how awesome it is. They serve chilled 40 ounce bottles of beer and cheese curds. What’s not to like about a place like that?

I need to do laundry tonight. All of my Twins shirts are dirty and I need to wear every last one of them while I’m Yankee-territory.


  1. You can write off any medical bills as long as you’re not getting reimbursed from a Medical Flexible Spending Account.

    I wanna go to Town Talk. I also wanna go to Hell’s Kitchen when I finally get up there to visit.

    I live on the edge of Hell’s Kitchen. If you don’t want to sit in the rain at Yankee Stadium, you should go to Scruffy Duffy’s in Hell’s Kitchen. They have the best Buffalo wings in town, and lots of big screen TVs.
    And you can only “write off” medical bills if you itemize, and only the portion of medical expenses that exceed 7.5% of your adjusted gross income.
    God my life is exciting.

  3. Hell’s Kitchen (the restaurant in downtown Minneapolis — not the one PeeWee is talking about) is soooo good. I highly recommend making reservations — we hadn’t because we didn’t know they would be so busy, and we waited over an hour for a table! But it was worth it. Good food and interesting atmosphere. If I remember right, the servers are all in their PJs.

    Oh, Hell’s Kitchen is a restaurant? Sorry! I just made the assumption that you guys were talking about Hell’s Kitchen (the neighborhood in NYC).
    Carry on.

What's up?
