Furshlugginer Knee

Going home would have seemed to be a simple thing and it probably would have been if the soft splint that they put on my knee actually allowed it to bend more than a few degrees. Although it's quite swollen, it can bend. It just isn't happy about lateral motion, nor do I intend to experiment with putting any substantial weight on it for the time being.

The Curve of the Knee

Well, the knee can bend. Sometimes. It's still pretty swollen though.

We saw the doc today and he's sending me for an MRI tomorrow. He says the knee is reasonably stable, which is good news.

It still twinges nicely, though, when I move in the wrong direction.
