Poor old Robin hasn’t been too well this week. He has suffered a nasty attack of gout and has been feeling very sorry for himself. Gout is an extremely painful affliction and needs medication to ease the pain. So we had a trip to doctor on Monday because this gout attack was in the knee, instead of in the foot as it usually is. We needed a visit for blood tests to rule out any other cause, and then a trip to the chemist for new medication.
After several days off work downing pills and resting the knee Robin is now feeling a little better. Muffy has been doing her bit in Robin’s recuperation, keeping him company during the day curled up on his lap.
