We were heading out to dinner one night when I looked down at Dave’s feet and noticed that he was wearing his Ugg slippers. So naturally I asked incredulously, “Are you wearing slippers?!” I couldn’t help but feel bad when he told me that they were the only thing in which his feet were comfortable.
When Dave had his first line of chemo, one of the drugs caused neuropathy. I thought this meant numbness, but for Dave it means discomfort and pain. He was told that it could take months to correct itself. Now, five months later there are no signs of improvement. He can’t stand for long periods of time, or if he does he is miserable the next day. Even driving can make his feet hurt. I have tried to convince him to go and have a pedicure, but he isn’t at all interested! So, we are thinking about buying a foot massager from Brookstone. Anyone ever invested in one? Any other ideas?
