    Ouch!

    Last week, I injured my knee at work. It is most likely a torn meniscus. I will have an MRI to determine how bad it is. If it is a complete tear, I will have to have surgery. Not something I wanted for the holiday season!
    I'm hoping for just a partial tear that can be managed non-surgically. Right now, I'm hobbling around with a knee brace, and I'm on light duty at work.
    At least, I get to park in the front, because I'm not allowed to use stairs.

    Thank you, Gayle, Cali and Diego!
    My orthopedic doctor is excellent. I saw him about 10 years ago at a different office, but he did not remember me. Obviously, he has seen hundreds of patients since then.
