Lounging About...

This is my fourth day of lounging about on the sofa in the attempt to allow some healing to take place in my poor old arthritic knee. I seem to have done something to it a week or so ago, and by last Monday while I was at work I found that I couldn't bend my knee at all. Since my job at the library involves a LOT of walking and bending, I went home early that day and have been recuperating ever since. Finally I'm able to put some weight on it and things are looking up. I know that the lack of cartilage in my knee is the culprit, but I'm hoping that I can carry on with my job for a little while longer. I love working at the library, but if I am completely honest with myself, I know that it has probably aggravated my condition quite a bit. I certainly am not ready for a knee replacement, so will just carry on the best I can, even if it means giving up my beloved job.
