I have less pain in my knee than I’ve had in months — and no wonder. It turned out I was just walking on bone, without benefit of cartilage. I’m always glad when I learn I wasn’t being a hypochondriac. My brain is pretty clear — nothing but Motrin for the incision pain — but I slept badly. I think I was thrown off by all the drugs in my system. My brain is functioning, but not well. Blogging will be light today. Moreover, since I have to keep my knee elevated, I’ll be blogging from my iPad, which is inelegant and slows me down. A small price to pay for the possibility of long-term pain relief.
