Thinking of you

It's been a rough few days lately as I've had some unexpected symptoms from a cortisone shot I got on Thursday.  Seems the ortho doc thinks I should have a total knee replacement.  I think NOT so opted for draining the knee, the cyst, and a shot of cortisone followed by PT and a big old ugly brace.  I just wasn't expecting the high bp, vision problems, tingling etc. as I've had cortisone before w/o any issues. 

The doc called this the "rusty years"...so much for all that exercise they say is good for you!!

I have a couple of Rubbernecker cards that I haven't had a chance to get posted.  I've had 3 friends diagnosed with breast cancer in the last week.  That's 3 too many.  I'm sending these cards out with prayers for their complete healing.

Oh my goodness that is not good news regarding your friends, my prayers are with them. As for your knee the replacement surgery isn't that bad I've had it done and it is well worth the effort, better than prolonging something that is causing many more problems. Yes it is surgery but they have you up and at it straight away these days, miraculous. I think cortisone does more damage than good.

Take it easy, I am thinking of you.
