Step One - Glow In The Dark

"It's the getting up and down that really hurts," I told Dr. Burandt. "And why is the middle finger on my left hand painful but the others are not?"

He bent the knees and bent my hands. "It's time for x-rays," he said. He mentioned arthritis. I thought that was a gradual onset thing but he said it can be triggered by trauma and falling on the floor is traumatic to a body.

So, I had both knees and both hands x-rayed. I went through a whole bunch of different poses. The technician came out with one of the hand x-rays and showed me how the different poses show different aspects of the hand. It was interesting. The x-rays will be read and results should be ready by Thursday.

I'm not interested in a quick fix here. I just want to be able to sit and stand without this pain.

Beverage:  Scottish Breakfast tea
