A picture is worth a thousand words



Last night I was going up to the studio to put the border on my niece's quilt. I heard a "pop" and I screamed. Screamed! The pain is incredible. I cried like a little girl. Trying to get back to the kitchen for an ice pack was an ordeal but I did it...and it only took 20 minutes.

I gave birth to 2 children without medication. I am not a baby about pain. Lemme tell you...this knee pain is a killer. I am calling the orthopaedic surgeon as soon as the office opens and try to get an appointment today. Hopefully they will be able to inject the site with cortisone and I will be good to go. (Or at least with reasonably less pain!)

I have girlfriends coming from Virginia and New York to visit this weekend. Wouldn't you just know it!?!

  1. OW! Hope you can get this taken care of right quick - I am gimping ever so slightly and it is throwing everything off, and I am in no where near the pain you describe.
