Today's post will be brief. I spent a lot of time in my doctor's waiting room yesterday, and he thought the knee looked pretty good but sent me to have an Xray done just in case. He suggested ice packs (made of frozen peas) and said I should continue taking two ibuprophen every four hours, and stay off the workout machines except for upper-body. I hate upper-body, and am not crazy about ice packs or ibuprophen either, for that matter, but then I was the one who went running down the street and did some damage to the knee.
I recommend you read my September 11 and 12 posts, in that order, whether you have read them before or not. Don't forget to read all the comments too, and post one yourself if you feel like it. We live in troublesome times. Good news is coming, and some of it will be right here on this blog.
