And took some ibuprofen. Hopefully I will be able to sleep. Everything on me hurts, but the knees are, of course, the worst--both of them together. The right starts out at a certain level of pain and gets worse over the course of the day. That is the one to be operated on. The left sometimes is fine and then sometimes the pain is very sharp. It is annoying, but it is interfering with my work as about 2 pm I am all but curled up in my cubicle hurting. Still, I've been working through it anyway. But I haven't been happy. Good thing the surgery is next week. :) I can't believe I am saying this, but I am looking forward to it, if it helps with the pain.
