The Knee Wars

I messed up my knee the other day. It seemed much better yesterday and then acted up again today. I decided to check out knee problems on the Internet.

Big mistake.

Not only are there scads of articles but some of them have a certain scare factor that I'd rather omit for now. So I've scurried back to basics: Elevate the leg. Use Ben-Gay ointment. Tell the family that my only request is to be waited on hand and foot. Make that hand and knee.

The reaction has not been promising. I think I'll Google "bedside manner."
