Inflamed (105/365)

TIME: 3:00 PM
PLACE: Home Sweet Home
SUBJECT: Inflamed

As if I didn't have enough going on this week, I finally decided I could no longer ignore the pain and swelling in my knee. I have an old war wound softball injury that required arthroscopic surgery about six years ago. It bothers me on occasion, but in a day or two is back to normal. Not this time.

After looking at my knee and doing a quick examination, my family doctor prescribed a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and referred me to an orthopedic surgeon. I'll know if this is minor or my body rebelling - again - on the 26th. Unfortunately that was the first available appointment.

I hope the treatment helps, Dana. I had a, uh, disagreement with my M-60A1 tank about 40 years ago and my knee still bothers me. A lot. So I know it ain't no fun!

We are like old cars. Parts start failing after a couple decades. You just turned 39 didn't you Dana?

I work in the medical field. We used to give samples of this patch to our patients. Got some pretty good results from it.

I hope it works. Good Luck
