I Know I Did--Too Many Times Already
This weather is unrelenting. The weekend did moderate a bit, but no we are back in the upper 90's. The Boys seems to be hanging out in the barn with the fans blowing on them so they do have some respite.
My knee still hurts, of course. I did call the doctor and now have an appointment for next week, so that's a bit better. The nurse assured me the doctor could both drain my knee and treat it with the PRP therapy on the same day, so that's good. It's still longer than I really want to wait, but my options are limited. If I go to the orthopedic surgeon, they are likely to want all kinds of tests, etc, and I'll be reminded of the replacement option, something I am not quite ready for.
I feel better sticking with the doctor I know, treatment I understand, and the non-surgical approach to it all.
Fortunately, I am able to swim and I did so again today. I also took three trips around the Lazy River, getting a bit of sun and just relaxing. It did feel good just kind of floating along, not thinking about much.
Patchadoodle seems to have settled into the house really well. The other cats are tolerating him just fine and I did some play therapy with everyone both today and yesterday. Chasing a feather thing on a stick seems to be a fairly universal cat instinct and as the other guys watched Patches bat at the toy, I think there was a bit of feline bonding going on.
I'm glad as Patches really is a sweet kitty who loves to cuddle. He makes a nice addition to the household.
