Knee celebration!

I banged my left knee really hard almost 8 weeks ago and it's been reacting for weeks. I just spent much more time than i expected at the doctor, with the happy result of a diagnosis of prepatellar bursitis, a recommendation NOT to drain the fluid (which sounded more painful than my knee is currently), and advice to minimize kneeling and not to fall on it again (which was given with acknowledgement that it is pointless advice).

In getting the x-rays to make sure nothing else was going on, the right knee was also imaged. Turns out that knee has a bad fitting knee cap, and i can expect some (more) arthritis there. It was bothering me more a year or so ago, but not so much these days.

So, i might get a little chair for various gardening tasks, but in general, no change of life. Yay! But my excuse not to go to the Saturday morning exercises goes away. Sigh.
