Kreaky Knees

It is common for my knees to swell when I get chemo. Usually, that is an ocurance that begins the day after treatment and lasts about 24 hours. I think it is from fluid retention, but I'm not sure.

This time, it has lasted nearly a week. I have been hobbling around the house with two jelly bags for knees that make walking and standing a precarious business. They don't hurt really, but they feel weak and unsupported. I can't bend them very well or very far.

I'm not sure what to make of it. I have been waiting to see if they get better rather than calling the docs. Today they seem somewhat improved so the dawg and I went out for a walk. The temps are in the mild region around here so I figured we could both do with a stroll. Now we are home again and I am trying to think of something to fix for dinner. A pretty average day.
