I have not been taking anti-inflammatory painkillers since returning from the Ride. I have to consider my liver. Gradually as the weather warmed, my knees improved, and the pain has subsided though I did continue to apply Achy Rub and take fish oil. I noticed that a sudden dip in the temperature yesterday was accompanied by some exacerbation of the condition, but otherwise the knees are progressing well.
The weather has turned a bit hiemal after the recent warm spell. The house is cold in the mornings when I awake, and I am stiff (in the knees) when I arise but after just receiving a $500 power bill, I am not using the heaters any longer.
I am looking forward to a visit from my sister Sue tomorrow. I shall show her around the Shire and take her dinner in Woodanilling.
I have to get the house a bit tidier before she arrives!
