It's been a busy 24 hours. Yesterday I went to a doctor about my ankle. They did an x-ray and he thinks I may need to have surgery again.
I'm going out this afternoon for a CAT scan because of a gray area he was concerned about. Then I guess I'll make another appointment with him to see what he says. At least I got a new boot. Those things fall apart fast and are very expensive. My insurance has not been very helpful.
I just got back from taking both dogs to the vet. They have secondary infections, and Charlie has tonsillitis. They were not happy campers to get shots.
When they brought a new boot in for me yesterday, I could tell it was one that went up to the knee. So when they came back to put it on, I asked if I could drive in it.
The doctor heard me from the hall and came around the corner and said I could not drive in any boot. Well, I have been. I don't have any choice. I've tried doing the brake with my left foot, but I'm terribly clumsy at it.
I told him I didn't have any other choice right now. So they gave me the shorter boot like I already had, because I can bend my knee better in it. And said all this was at my own risk. Well, I realize this. I wish things could be different.
You never think when you're young that you will come to a point where you have no idea who is going to be around to help you out when push comes to shove.
Heavens, there's a college student who went home and shot and killed his parents and 17 year old sister because he owed a loan shark $3000.
I just got the book "The Sociopath Next Door." I just can't conceive of actions like this. But it happens all the time.
According to CBS News:
"Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks said Hruby owed money to a loan shark. Hicks did not say why Hruby had so much debt, only that his spending was out of control.
"The reason we were given for the murders was that he was having financial difficulties," Hicks said at a news conference in Duncan. "He felt if he murdered (his family) he would be the only heir to the estate."
Hicks said Hruby shot his mother and father twice each and his sister once. He later left the family's house and disposed of the gun and disc from a home security system. Hruby then traveled to Dallas for the weekend, where he stayed at the upscale Ritz-Carlton hotel, Hicks said.
Hicks said Alan Hruby acted "very nonchalant" and "cold and callous" when he arrived at the home where the bodies of his parents were discovered by the family's housekeeper Monday.
"I tend to think this is a very heinous and atrocious crime," Hicks said. "This shows the fact there was no remorse; this shows this was an evil person."
"Any tears that were shed (by Alan) were crocodile tears," he said.
Alan Hruby's college roommate, Andrew Burmann, reportedly accompanied him on the trip to Dallas following the murders.
Burmann told CBS affiliate KWTV he is in disbelief over the accusations against his friend and that nothing seemed out of the ordinary on their trip to Dallas.
"We were laughing, making jokes and he was hiding this... which is one of the scariest things," Burmann said.
