So, everyone is tucked away in the blankets we set up earlier. (These pictures are from November 15, I didn't have time to take pictures this afternoon.)
I am more thankful than ever that we'd gotten this ready earlier. With the problems I've been having walking (bad bad bad knee), I couldn't have gone outside to cover the plants without the prep we'd done. Even with it, I was thankful for the pain pills the rheumatologist had prescribed for me.
I wish I could have gotten another shot in the knee, as they really do help. Unfortunately, the last one didn't help for long enough and it's too soon to have gotten another one. Plus, the x-rays I had earlier don't explain why I've been having as much pain as I've been experiencing. So...more tests are in order. Tomorrow, I go for an MRI.
I'm hoping it will tell the doctor that I just need a shot of some very good lube in my knee. The alternative could be surgery, and I'm not happy about that.
I've come to the firm conclusion that pain killers are NOT as good as being pain free.
