Official knee news

The doctor has called. At least his nurse called. He says all the x-rays show is arthritis in both the hip and knee. Why am I surprised? I could have told him that (and did, as a matter of fact). Why it gave out on me on Wednesday, no one knows. They said they could write me a prescription for pain meds if I need it, but I seriously do not need pain medication. I just need something to make my knee hold weight! They also told me if it wasn't better by Monday, to call. I guess that will have to wait until Monday a week. We're still going on vacation!

Love to all, and God bless.

Did they even suggest a knee brace to help you hold weight? That's what I had to use after I blew out my knee in high school, then reinjured when I was a cheerleader (very briefly) at Tusculum. Then I reinjured it again at Toyota. So now I'm supposed to wear one of those neoprene knee braces that have the metal hingie thingies on the sides when I'm doing physical activity - but I don't do any physical activity, so I don't use one. LOL! You might try one of those and see if it helps, Tooz!

Love you, have fun, and hug everybody for me!
