Wow! It's been awhile since my last post. I guess life sometimes gets in the way. Well, I have a new friend that I've been spending a lot of time with so that has kept me away from the computer. Plus, I'm going through a little bit of an 'injury crisis' - my left knee had been hurting for quite awhile now and the pain finally became unbearable, so I went to Urgent Care, only to find out that it's probably the early stages of degenerative arthritis. I followed up with Orthopedics, where they drained 2 full syringes of fluid out of my knee and shot me up with some Cortisone for some temporary relief (not much). I have to do 4 weeks of physical therapy and then back to the doctor to see if I'll need surgery. In the meantime, I'm supposed to rest it and ice it. This sucks! I hate being hurt!

sorry about your knee. but the new friend, that seems like a good reason to be away for awhile. perhaps he could give you a knee rub:)
