First, the state of the flannel scrap basket:
The state of the knee: I had a second shot of cortisone about 10 days ago, at first it was totally wonderful! For about 5 days. Then it started screaming at me again, it has calmed down some and I'm giving it the full two weeks the doc said it might take before committing but I think the next step is going to be the Euflexxa shots. I can live with a great deal of pain (one pain pill for 2 carpal tunnel surgeries, one pain pill for a c-section) but long term pain is hard on your general health and the limp I just can't always stop causes other places to hurt. The big kicker though is that I have caught myself thinking-"I don't want to walk Quinn tonight, my knee will hurt." And that is just wrong on so many levels! The shots are once a week for three weeks and are supposed to bulk up the fluid under the knee cap. We'll see.
And Quinn. Here she is gnawing on a marrow bone! She's been at it for over an hour. After I took the photos, she turned her back on me so I couldn't see the bone! Guess she didn't want to pose any longer!
