Robin’s feeling Poorly

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.
