I need to explain.....

I want to thank you all for your concern.  I touches me.  I would like to explain my problem. Went to the foot doctor, and now my feet are good, but I continued to have terrible knee pain. So I went to another doctor who did x-rays on my knees.  I feared I had arthritis, but the x-rays came back good.  My bones are in really good shape and I have lots of cartilage.  So it isn't arthritis, I actually have bursitis in the muscle that leads from my ankles to my knees.  Both legs.  I have been going to physical therapy but it's gotten to expensive so I had to quit.  So now I guess I could go back to the doctor and get cortisone shots or just continue with exercises on my own and hope it heals up quickly.  I vote for both.  I really hate those shots, they hurt like hell, but in the end it will help with the pain!  So that's it.  Nothing real serious, just bothersome and well, it hurts like hell!  And it's been making me grouchy and tired.  

  1. So, I'm EXTREMELY grateful for all of you and for your concern.
  2. I'm grateful for the snow we received in our mountains last night and today.
  3. I'm grateful that it's a 3 day weekend for me.  YAY!

I don't care what it is from, pain is no fun to live with. Specially when it limits your life. I am glad it is not worse, but still this sounds serious enough.

Pain is so distracting as it commands to be noticed; I hope you will soon feel better and be able to rest.

Your photos, as always, are breathtaking.

Oh Susan..
I'm so sorry for the pain that you deal with.
No wonder you've had a bad month.
It's always hard to be in pain, and go about feeling cheerful.

Thinking of you, and saying prayers for you.

EW! Bursitis! But at least it isn't arthritis. ;)
