So last wednesday's dr appointment went well. The doc said exactly what I thought he would... I will be having surgery on my left knee in the next few months. The doctor will do a scope, so there should be minimal scars, two small ones on my lower knee and one on my upper knee. He will go in and loosen the tendons on the left side and reshape the cartilage on the right side. My kneecap rides up on the bone instead of sitting in the joint. This causes it to move in a J shape when I move it. By releasing the tension on the tendons that will aleviate the pressure on my knee and allow my kneecap to move more toward the joint. I will be out of work for a week to two weeks and it is supposed to be very painful and it will bleed a lot. I am nervous, but I have been struggling with it for so long that I am really glad to have it done.
I had an appointment yesterday and had my thyroid checked. I am on a new perscription to regulate my hormone levels. Hopefully I will be more normal now!
Poor Corey is at home today with tonsilitis. He had a really high fever yesterday, but he didn't act sick. Since I was already at the doctor, we just had him look at Corey too. Apparently Corey has splotchy tonsil. So Corey is on an antibiotic and will no longer be contagious after 24 hours of taking it.
Anyway, this is our exciting life right now! I hope everyone is doing well.
