Oh, Stella, I do worry about you. I hope that everything comes together so that you can get some help and I hope that begins on Thursday morning - or sooner if possible! Please let us know what happens Thursday.
Will someone who knows all about what you have been experiencing be going with you to the appointment AND into the doctor's exam with you??
I hope you get some relief soon.
These may not very helpful thoughts, but they are sent with good wishes.

Yes, Stella, I have my fingers crossed for you too, that Thursday is the beginning of your finding a solution to what's happening with your foot.

I hope you know that we care about you here and we're all hoping that something SOON will work out a whole lot better for you than anything has so far...
