Taking It Easy
Monday, September 02, 2013      9 comments

I did go to Church this morning and filled up the gas tank on the car. Otherwise, I am taking it easy - primarily sitting with my leg elevated with an intermittent ice pack. Hopefully, by tomorrow I will be able to walk without a pronounced limp... Read more
Knee Follow-Up
Sunday, September 01, 2013      12 comments

I remember now catching myself in a slip on a wet floor by an entrance (we've had some rain). I didn't fall. As MNTWINSGAL suggested, I most likely hyperextended it. I have been resting, icing and elevating. As it is not swollen, I haven't been ... Read more
Sore Knee

Getting Spoiled

Again, I had dinner at a friend's (different) house. Tonight, it was Bar-B-Q ribs, corn and cheesy potatoes. Not nearly as nutritious but it was delicious. I so enjoy having meals with friends as when I eat at home, it is usually alone.... Read more

Yesterday I was home at 3 PM. It was a nine hour day - much better than the 12 hr days that had become the norm. I then spent 2 hours enjoying the outdoors, despite the temp being in the high 80's and humid.... Read more

Had full days and no chance to blog the last couple of days. Today, I saw no patients as I was at a conference about Back Pain in the Elderly. It was informative and interesting. ... Read more
Memorial
Monday, August 19, 2013      12 comments

There was a memorial service for my cousin at the NH where she spent the last 5 years of her life. It was good to reconnect with those who were a part of her life and to share in the closure. Besides the Bible readings, we sang 'Blessed Assuranc... Read more

It was within a couple degrees of setting a record for the coldest August 14. It is supposed to drop into the 40's tonight. It feels like Oct. I am torn about turning on the heat. Who has heard about using the furnace in August? I've decided on ... Read more
