…well, not really. This is me, after all. But following along in the vein of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who made the same announcement during the worst of the debacle at Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport, and then followed it with several hundred more of their words, here–with the hope that I’m more on point, or at least more interesting, than their Royal Wokenesses–I go:
I just came back from getting a cortisone shot in my knee. I’ve probably got a small tear in the meniscus, and I may need surgery at some point, but we’re taking it one step at a time. Jen (the Physician’s Assistant) is very good** and it didn’t hurt much–very unlike the one I got a few months ago for trigger finger in my left hand. That one was excruciating. And it didn’t solve the problem long-term, as they assured me it does in about two-thirds of the cases. So most definitely surgery in my future at some point for that one. Deep joy.
Most of the trip home from the doctor’s office (about nine miles) is Interstate highway. Once I get off the Interstate, I’m on narrow country roads which may, or may not, have road markings. They’re not heavily traveled, and we don’t speed because of all the bends and the hills.
