Regarding My Knee Injury

Hi, all.  Just a quick note regarding my knee -- I've begun physical therapy that will last six weeks to see if I can avoid surgery for what the MRI says is two tears in my meniscus.  The pain has subsided, thanks to a few visits to my chiropractor to put my back and hips into place, but the weakness persists.  I also have some low-grade neuropathy and some other nerve-related -pathy, but since I'm no longer in constant pain, I'm not that concerned at the moment.  I have, after all, injured this knee repeatedly over the last twenty-five years.

Anyway, between the pain and writer's block and everything else that's been going on this summer, I've basically said screw it and gone on what I'm told is called a "staycation".  Done a lot of fishing, worked on lowering my stress level, and tried to get my brain back into gear.  Now, if only I had a laptop that I could stand to type on for more than a minute at a crack without cramping up or cursing Lenovo for such a shitty keyboard...  I might be able to get some work done.

I've been having some good ideas, so hopefully when I knuckle down and get back to work I won't hate what I'm writing so much that I'll actually get something done.

I'll update with regards to my knee and when I can get back to work.  Hammer will strike again.

Thanks for reading!
