Saw the Doctor this morning and he is almost certain he knows what is wrong with my knee. He thinks it is Chondromalacia patella. I start physical therapy tomorrow. So I am reading about it and am kindof pleased it is a injury young healthy athletes as opposed to fat middle aged out of shape gramma's. Its nice to be in this catagory, :-p Also it is something that the majority of time is fixable without surgery though he still says down the road I will have to have the gravel removed. Way far down the road in my book.
The other thing it might be is a meniscus tear which wouldn't be as good. And reading about it I have all the symptoms to that also. So we shall see. No gym release yet. He is restricting my standing to 1 to 2 hours in a 8 hour period.
It is way to easy to resort to boredom eating in this type of situation so I dug out a puzzle to put together. A really hard 1500 piece puzzle. That should help. This is the type of thing you do when you don't have TV. Reading is number 1, needlepoint, puzzles, computer surfing. and way down on the list cleaning my house, LOL.
Saturday we are going to Omaha for a beer tasting event. They have been getting some pretty good snow so that is depending on the weather. Should be fun and we are going with that friend of ours who has lots of money so it is always fun watching him spend it on cases of beer while we buy one or two.
I am off work until Thursday. Happy Happy Joy Joy. Last night I got to come home at 11:30. Very nice as my knee was throbbing and nice just because. Stayed up and played final fantasy for awhile, did I mention video games as another thing you do without TV. I am addicted to that game.
