Can knees cry?
That's what I feel my right knee is doing right now. Plain out bawling its tears.
If there is no longer any padding within our kneecap, does that mean the bones are grating against each other?
I know the answer. It's what the doctors have been telling me lately,"You're rubbing bone against bone." Grate, grate, grate.
The specialist bone doctor, who I shall call Looking-Mighty-Tired, told me on Friday that knees like mine have four options for improvement. Medications, shots, physical therapy, and surgery. Hahaha,
Guess what? I achieved without trying. I went straight to the top of the class. Bingo! Surgery!
Slowly by slowly, since Friday, my brain is understanding the impact of my (without trying) achievement. Half an hour after the appointment, I had said to the Husband, "I wonder if this is outpatient surgery. I forgot to ask."
Right, silly me.
To be continued.
