Before my doctor went on vacation he told me I have arthritis in my left knee and gave me medicine. He would discuss with me what to do about it when he gets back on the 27th. Fun right?
I took my medicine and was starting to feel better when I stepped on the knee going down the stairs and suddenly saw stars. I was in lots of pain and I had a long car ride ahead me (I was upstate for a family gathering). Tom wanted to take me to the ER but I thought I would put ice on it and it would be better in the morning. It wasn’t and I stayed home from church.
Tom came home and took me to the ER. They took X-rays and the good news was nothing was broken, but I have severe arthritis and need to follow-up with my doctor.
I did get to take home the cool brace pictured above. Truly looks worse than it is. I’m grateful to all the people at church for their love, prayers and offers of help. Thanks guys.
