This post is not for the faint of HEART...get it? HEART?
I feel as if I have overdone the topic of heart these last couple of days that I decided it would be best to move onto another body part. How about my knee? Over a month ago I was playing basketball with some guys and fell really hard on my left knee. I've never, ever in all my year of playing, landed on my knee the way I did that day. I knew it was only bruised, but I bruised it about as hard as I could. I fell on the outside of my knee but the pain was all around. To this day I still can't kneel on it...too painful. As a result I have fluid around my knee. My girls think it's WAY cool, Kaleb starts to gag. I barely touch the skin and it ripples. I'm almost wishing I had a video because I know you'd LOVE to see it. So the other night we were playing with it and Steve gave me the idea to use a syringe to take some of the fluid out. (no worries, everything was sterile and clean) As of tonight I have done it three times now, each time getting about 3mls of fluid. I figure it's good practice for when I become a nurse. Enjoy and you're welcome.
