Another waiting room
Another day of Dr. appointments...this is drawn in the waiting room of the orthopedic surgeon's office as I waited to determine when my 2nd knee replacement was going to take place. This plump little woman was accompanied by her mother and an attitude. Determined to read her book and ignore her mother she sat very still, lucky for me.
The doc gave me a gel injection and a week to make up my mind as to when to get the surgery. I am terrified as we discovered during the previous surgery on the other knee that I am allergic to Vicodin and Darvoset...holy moly but the substitutes didn't quite do the job. The doc says there are a couple of others we can try but no quarantees...so I have more than a little anxiety about all this.
Just I think I shall just draw my way through this. I should just draw myself a perfectly good knee and call it good.
