You might have noticed that things have slowed down around here of late, and there’s a reason for that. I’ve been having trouble with my legs, enough that I’m uncomfortable sitting in front of the computer for long periods of time. The pic of the Tokyo Tower you saw the other day in the moblog was taken while I went to the Tokyo Medical and Surgical Clinic, on the opposite side of the street. The doctor didn’t have much to say, but they’re testing me for a bunch of things, and I’ll get the results this Thursday. Nothing much to do in the meantime but wait, live with the pain, and hope it’s nothing too serious.

Oh, and a huge thanks goes out to the people on the JapanBloggers mailing list who were quick to recommend English-speaking clinics in Tokyo to me. Believe it or not, but after all these years in Japan this was my first time going to a hospital for something serious (last time I went to a hospital for a health check was 7 years ago). I’d been to a local Japanese clinic once or twice for stomach virus problems, but that was just to get some medicine to calm things down. I chose the above clinic as it had been mentioned by a few people, and they had a website with a lot of info. I’m glad I went as the service was great. Expensive, yes, but I was expecting that.
