yep, i have a torn meniscus - usually happens to athletes, but in my case, it degenerative - at least that is the preliminary diagnosis. i am waiting to get MRI scheduled now. then we will see. i only hope that i don't have to have surgery during the week i am in paris. that would really blow. what was i doing when it tore? sleeping. i awoke to pain and it has only grown worse and worse. thank you, god, for inventing vicodin. my damn knee hurts. OK good night, vicodin and wine don't mix to well.
