Good news first.
I've got the money for a new computer. I will be ordering it next week, just in time for Windows 7 to have come out, so I don't have to waste time with Windows Vista.
Very happy about that. New comp will also have a webcam, which is also of the good.
Not so good news second.
I went to the doctor today. I've been having trouble with my legs for a few years now. Mostly due to my overweight. But with the losing weight, I was getting annoyed that my legs kept refusing to get thinner. Anyway, the doctor said that it might take years before the swelling of the legs goes away, but he gave me a prescription for some pills that might help.
He also gave me a what's the word sort of a letter for a doc at the hospital, to have them do something called a Doppler test to check the veins in my legs. Hoping it's not too bad, but apparently there's some specific cases where they might be able to do something about it.
If they can, then they might have to do an operation, let's just hope it won't go that far.
Luckily most of this gets paid back by the mutualities (Belgian version of healthcare), the only thing that doesn't get mostly repaid is the pills he gave me a subscription for. But I think I can handle another 25€ this month, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem.
