Ouch! Enforced Rest.

This is where I was on Monday; getting an ultrasound on my very, very, painful knee.

Fortunately, it’s not a blood clot and it’s not a Baker’s Cyst. Feeling grateful for that. Tendinitis is no fun, however. Nolemana’s had to help me almost everywhere I go. No spinning and I can only hobble from one room to the other, very slowly.

And this is my view every two hours for twenty minutes while I ice my knee.

Ice and ibuprofen are my friends right now. And we’re in the middle of a major heat wave around here; it’s over 100°, expected to hit 105° at least. Also, smoke from fires in British Columbia is making things extremely hazy. Glad I’m not out in it.

    Oh, knee pain is no fun! Glad it’s during this heat wave, though; laying low and icing often sounds pretty good (minus the pain)!

      You’re right… this is a good time to be staying quiet indoors for sure. It’s so hazy out there and I wouldn’t want to be out in all the smoke. Minus the pain would be wonderful. Thank you so much!

    I think I hate the smoke more than the heat. I hope whatever is going on with your knee resolves itself.

    • Mokihana says:

      Thanks, Kathy. It’s tendinitis, and I think it’s gonna be taking awhile. If it’s not better in 10 days, I have to have physical therapy. I hope to be able to avoid that.

    Aue Moki-chan! I had hoped you were on the coast with your friends. I will think good thoughts for you and your knee. Thank goodness for Nolemana. I’m with Kathyh–the smoke is just as oppressive as the heat, even though the smoke is helping to keep temps down.

    • Mokihana says:

      I wish about the coast! Thank you for your good thoughts…they’re much appreciated. I don’t know what I’d do without Nolemana around. He’s an excellent caregiver.
      The smoke is really bad, yeah? I think of all those brave firefighters out there fighting all these infernos…we are so blessed to have them on the front lines.
