Water on the Knee?

My left knee is full of fluid. Not sure why. It doesn't hurt much, but I can't bend it over 90 degrees either. I played softball on it tonight and got a pinch runner each time I got on base. Some occasional pain behind the knee. It feels weak. I'm going to rest it over the weekend. No long run with the TRC. If it's still swollen on Monday, it'll be time to go visit the doctor.

Now for the good news. Ice-T is now my neighbor. Well, not next door neighbor. Well, not in the same square mile. But, same city. 4.34 miles away. Honest. OK, maybe he lives closer to J-mom and K-pokey. But, he lives in a Shea Laguna model, I live in a Shea Newport model. We're practically best buddies. I hope his knee is ok.

Hey, Ice do you want to go for a run when my knee is better?

We had him to dinner last night. He really is a nice guy once you get past all of the cussing.

OMG Pat! I totally need to drop by your house. I named my last pair of kicks after Ice-T and the always elegant and classy (I'm being sarcastic :P) Coco LOL

Water on the knee just makes me think of that game Operation. Wasn't water on the knee one of the conditions? Anywya, feel better soon!

Cheryl said...

Ooooh, that knee thing does not sound good. Take care of that!

I like Ice Tea in the summer. Oh, that Ice-T. I enjoy him on Law and Order SVU. You should definitely find out if he's a runner! :-)

Hey, Cheryl, didn't he used to be a singer or something like that?

Take care of that knee, Pat, you've got way too many miles to cross Arizona.

I happen to likey Mr Ice T....but I'm with Cheryl - I liked him on Law & Order :)

We sooooo missed you today Pat! I want you to know we practiced plenty of positive self talk in your honor.

"I am getting stronger"

"I am getting stronger"

It was ALMOST like having you there :) Take care of yourself - TRC needs you back SOON!

I hope you get your knee checked out! That sounds hurtful!

I can probably operate using the Wii (sort of like an updated Operation game). Let me know if you need my services. :D

Seriously, I hope the swelling goes down and you feel better quick.

Ouch! I have the swelling but not the water. Just be patient and let your body heal, listen to me. I can’t even take my own advice. 17.5 miles last week, the weather kept me in some days.

Looks like Shaq may be a new neighbor. Great pick up for Phoenix.

Hi Nice Blog .The detailed Knee, for example, of the bronchial tree as seen through the bronchoscope is now of great importance. The introduction of laparoscopic and thoracoscopic instruments to explore and operate in the abdomen and thorax respectively has also opened new vistas as surgeons require to learn their anatomical landmarks through these approaches.
