I've been to see the doctor

I received cortizone shots in each knee; I really can't tell that it's done a lot right now, which concerns me.  But I sure do appreciate the doctor (it's my regular doctor's day off, so his partner saw me) working me in.  I also left FMLA forms to be filled out, so I can miss an occasional day from work if the pain is too much.  If I don't get some relief, I won't be keeping the job anyway.  But I want to give this every chance to run its course.  I told Dr. that the Celebrex doesn't seem to be helping, and he prescribed 800 mg Ibuprofen; we'll see if that does better.  That's my health report.  Now to enjoy this time off.  There's a slight chance of rain, so I'll wait till tomorrow to ride Blue.

Ibufrofen did not help me at all and neithere did Celebrex. I take BEXTRA now. It does good. I hope the shot kicks in soon.
