Steve noticed on Saturday that his left foot was slightly swollen. It's still swollen and looks a little worse today than yesterday.

Dr. M's office has ordered an ultrasound of his foot. They are looking for a blood clot.

Dr. M's nurse said to pack a bag. If the ultrasound shows a clot, he'll be admitted for treatment immediately.

So this morning we're scrambling. Liz will pick up Katie to take her to this morning's dance class. We're packing and will leave after Katie leaves. We hope to be at St. Paul's outpatient center by 11 a.m.

An ultrasound doesn't take long, and results are immediate, so we'll have an answer soon.

And if there's no clot, we'll continue to seek diagnosis until we have an answer.

I'll update as we know. Thanks for checking on Steve and for your prayers!
