Going along splendidly...

I have gotten permission from my health insurance company to go to a health clinic that has no waiting lines, and where my knee will be looked after in the shortest amount of time possible. I have my first appointment there tomorrow and I will be seeing the orthopedic surgeon. It is something I am very much looking forward to, because I think I will finally get a straight answer as to what the problem is with my knee and get the proper treatment.
My ex and I have been busy planning his two week train trip through southern Europe. This involved much more work than we had anticipated and much knowledge of foreign languages was needed. There are two train reservations that we have not been able to make yet and they involve an Italian company that is playing hard to get. I am sure the solution will present itself somewhere down the line, because you always have to stay optimistic.
I have been sleeping through the night because we always have cocktails in the evening and they sure help me sleep well. Tonight, however, I woke up because my knee was hurting so much and I could not go back to sleep because of it. I have taken Ibuprofen and Paracetamol and am waiting for them to work. I think the next time it will be better if I take them before I go to sleep.
I will make an attempt now at getting a few more hours of sleep before the day starts. My ex won't be up for a while, besides, he does know how to make his own cup of coffee.

Glad you are going to have these investigations, Irene and hope that they can do something to help. At least knowing what is wrong with you is the first step.
Good luck with it.

Nuts in May

Sorry you are having so much pain, Irene. I do hope the problem gets fixed, and fixed the first time.

Blessings and Bear hugs!
