Better than before

Hi everyone:

Patty seems to be mostly shedding the last vestiges of flu that had been plaguing her. A nagging cough is hanging on, though, and not wanting to let go.

She had a cortisone shot in her right foot two days ago to treat a neuroma; so far, it isn't working. The alternatives involve intentionally damaging the nerve, so we're hoping to avoid that route.

All in all, our patient seems to be doing pretty well, although she scared me a little last week when she complained of discomfort across her collar bone. Dr. Costanzo checked Patty out yesterday, and said she was doing great.

That's all I have for now. If anything else happens, I'll be sure to let you know.
