This is my last post for an uncertain period of time. I wasn’t sure when to do it, but this week is just nuts so while I’m thinking of it, here’s whatâ€™s happening.
I’m going in for surgery on Monday, February 19, to repair a torn meniscus in my left knee. Over the past two years I learned I have arthritis in my lower back and knees, on top of Hashimoto’s auto immune disease. This just means my thyroid no longer functions without medicine and pain management is unusually difficult. From what I’ve been told, the Hashimoto’s may be the cause of the arthritis (they both appeared together).
I think my knee was torn during a baseball game the summer of 2005 and I didn’t know it. I just thought the pain was part of the arthritis. We only recently discovered the damage during an MRI.
This is routine surgery. Iâ€™ll be back as soon as I can.
