I've sorta been out of commission since the middle of August. I injured my right knee August 15th; on September 13th, I twisted it again, causing a lot of immediate pain. Fortunately, after x-rays, an MRI, and visits to orthopedic specialists, I know that I didn't tear any cartilage or ligaments, which was our greatest concern! My arthritic kneecap evidently slid off, and then back onto, my knee joint 9/13, which led to bruising and swelling of tissues which, in turn, caused all that pain.
I have had the BEST nurse in the whole world attending me -- Phil!! He has been working from home while at the same time taking care of me and my needs.
I'm doing better daily, and am scheduled for physical therapy for four weeks. This has definitely interfered with my/our life style (!) because it has prohibited our normal travels, but we're just really grateful that I didn't do damage that would demand surgery in order to get better!! Time, care and PT should do it.
Thank you to all of you who have thought of me and prayed for my blessed right knee. :-)

Later in the afternoon, the water was still like glass.
