Russell - Sorry to hear about your knee. Hope things get better for you soon. I hurt my foot once, and I sort of hopped around for quite a while. Never realized how important my foot was. Took it 3 years and a lot of special tennis shoes to heal up. Wasn't sure if it ever would be the same again, but it finally is okay.

When we had to put down our dog, my Mom made us sit around and talk about it, and remember all the good times, after it happened, and we got back home. Back then, terms like pet parent weren't yet common, and if you suggested that to my Dad, he would have looked at you like you were crazy. The argument for pets being a part of the family is that we used the same method to get past my Mom passing. We sat and talked about good memories, and how we felt. Think about the good times, and as times passes, the memories stay strong, and the hurt diminishes some. Sorry for your loss. emoticon

Went to the doctor today. The student doctor that saw me, thought since I had gout, that had to be what was wrong. The doctor who oversaw her, vetoed that idea, and also nixed the idea of bursitis. I have inflammation of the patella region, and that is sore, but the bursitis would be deeper in the knee. So they wrapped the knee, gave me a scrip for Prednisone, and sent me on my way. I don't like Prednisone, and told the doc that sometimes it made me short of breath, and she said that shortness of breath wasn't a side effect of Prednisone. Also worried about weight gain. I have a 6 day run of the steroids, and after the first 2 pills, the pain is diminished, and I can bend my knee. Hopefully it fixes the problem, and the side effects are minimal.

Labour is prior to, and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labour, and could never have existed if labour had not first existed. Labour is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

Maw, I am so sorry you had to let her go, but I'm glad she's not suffering... Be extra gentle with yourself today.

Not a real remarkable day here - beautiful weather and my office windows are open. I walked the boys this morning, and they are home sleeping right now. I'm very envious of their freedom from anxiety!

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear friend, Maw. I second the hugs!

Ugh my weight is up a bunch today due to my bad day Saturday. Will try to stay really clean today on my eating.

Have a good day everyone and Maw, just realize and put on your gratitude list that Tanny, I think I remember that was her name, is now longer in any pain. Some people even think they go to heaven. Not sure what I believe about that but, at least she is no longer suffering and you can remember all of the good times you had with her.

So sorry Maw about your cat.

I'm glad for these daily posts. After my crazy weekend, it helped me this morning to remember what day it was.

The first few weeks are the hardest, but it will get easier. We went through it this winter with our Bowie.

Well, it's over. The vet came in early this morning so we could go right in. Everything was ready for us. And now she's gone. I came home expecting her to meet me at the door. I should have done it on Friday, when I didn't have all weekend to wait, and before she got to feeling worse yesterday. But at least it's done now. I hate this part of having a pet!

Massage day! So, that will be nice. Then some grocery shopping. The rest is the usual, cleaning and entertaining a baby.
