The Left Knee

Here’s what’s going on.  Last Tuesday I got a twinge of pain in my left knee.  Wednesday morning, that knee was swollen and causing me huge amounts of acute pain.  It’s only gotten worse.  This morning I went to see the Saw Bones and he had a battery of tests done and x-rays.  He drained a lot of fluid from the knee and injected Cortisone into it… a lot of Cortisone.  I don’t think I’ll need surgery again.   He also gave me a script for some serious pain meds.  Right now I am without pain.   That’s a beautiful thing.
