Took some advil and tried to go back to sleep, but at 6:20 I gave up and got up for the day. I put away the dishes in the kitchen, now I am eating bananana nut cheerios. (I know how to spell banana, I just have trouble stopping.) I need to do some puttering about anyway, my house is a disaster area.
I had knee surgery on May 7, so today is my two-month anniversary. Nice way to celebrate it, being too sore to sleep. The weird thing is that, while my knee hurts (particularly when I straighten it), my hip seems to hurt more. By "hip" I really mean butt, top outer thigh, sit bone, and maybe lower back. I expect it's related to the knee issue in some way. It's not very easily to define; I just know that it hurts, I don't like it, and I don't know what to do about it.
Is this what getting old is like? Will more body parts just gradually join in the cacophony until I can't even think over all the noise?
