It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Sunday night in the Theophilus household; the TV is on, and the dulcet tones of Al Micheals and John Madden can be heard throughout the house, describing the Colts vs. Redskins in the Hall of Fame Game.

Football season is here. It doesn't get any better than this.


Alright. I'm having problems with my left knee. I have arthritis under the kneecap, and the muscles that control the position of the kneecap are not holding it in place, which allows it to float, which irritates the tissue under the kneecap, with makes it swell and hurt. PAINFUL.

I'm starting physical therapy tomorrow. I got a cortisone shot the other day, and the needle was at LEAST two inches long.

My doctor prescribed this new pain medication, Mobic; he said it was like Naproxen Sodium, but without the stomach problems. What he didn't say was that it doesn't work. AT ALL. I took Mobic for three days, it didn't do a thing for the pain in my knee. So I'm back on Tylenol and Aleve and Ibuprofen.


My kids start school this Thursday, except for my oldest daughter. She moves into the dorm at Kentucky Christian University NEXT Friday, the 15th. Out of my house, into the dorm.

My little girl is going away. It makes me sad and proud and happy and scared, all at once.
