An Update on Mitch
Yesterday, Mitch went to another doctor. This one thinks he has Reynaud's disease. That is a disease of the bloodvessels that causes them to constrict and restrict the flow of blood to the affected areas. Mostly it affects hands and feet, but it can also affect just the hands or just the feet, or even only one or a couple of the toes and fingers. You can read more about Reynaud's disease here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/raynauds-disease/DS00433. So now Mitch is starting on medication for that. If it doesn't work, then I guess they will have eliminated another possibility. Sure hope it works!
