My swollen knee is back. I met today with a locum (as my own doctor is out of town) who prescribed some antibiotic tablets for what she diagnosed as an infection. I never take anything without finding out about side effects, the symptoms of which I immediately acquire upon reading about them, before any medication is taken. The side effects from this particular medication can be nasty, so I'm holding off until I go to an appointment I have scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. I will then consider whether or not I'm going to take them. In the meantime I have been using ice and at the moment have my knee wrapped in cabbage leaves...don't even ask.
Here is the little video from yesterday, and a collage of a Spotted Towhee that was checking out what might have been raked up yesterday... and a Varied Thrush.
