Owie Knee

John has a sore knee, and in Poppers World, when something hurts, you: soak it, put some salve on it, suck it up and deal. Most times in that order.
"I think that if I just keep moving and keep it working it will get better, it will heal ok."
I said, "Honey, if it's a torn meniscus, it will just keep getting worse, not better the more you move it."
"Ah, my biscuits are just fine."

Yeah. A torn biscuit is nothing to mess around with.

Always needs surgery--sometimes with butter and honey.

I just think it's so cute that after all these years you're still after his biscuits.

Be thankful that his scenario includes "soak it" and "put some salve on it". My guys go straight to "suck it up" and "deal with it" and then follow it with, "take a trip to the emergency room to prevent gangrene from setting in."

I may just have to take a picture of my husband's thumb and blog about it. "Does this look infected to you?" Hmmm, swelling, tenderness, redness, and pus. Infected? Nah.
