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.
