Yeah, I would definitely have it checked out if it doesn't get any better. Knee problems are a pain in the you know what.

So we went to visit my grandmother today..apparently she went out to change the sprinklers when my uncle (who lives with her) was working. She didn't have her walker or her call necklace and fell and broke her femur (not her hip, as was first thought). Thank goodness the neighbor saw her and called 911. She was delirious the whole time we went to see her from the pain meds. My mom got the "privacy code" required to call her (apparently my aunt has been raising a big fuss over the hospital choice, so they don't want to talk to her).

Ugh, family drama..my poor grandma. She's so darn stubborn! She "didn't need" the walker and "didn't want" the call necklace...this whole thing could have been prevented.

Edit-wait, sorry. I didn't mean that my grandma breaking her femur was family drama..just that, as I said, my mom comes from a dysfunctional family. They have strange ideas and are very argumentive...the slightest things make them blow up.

The way they're handling it is the drama. Older people can be very stubborn. I know because my mom is like that. "I don't like this" or "I don't want that." Ugh! I've been wanting my mom to have a colonoscopy for years but she won't do it. She doesn't want to take the medicine or feel the effects from it. lol But, who does?

I had an endoscopy done once. It's like a colonoscopy except an endoscopy goes through the esophagus, instead of the...um...other way....you don't feel a thing or remember anything. I was fully knocked out from the anesthesia, so I didn't even know they did the procedure. I actually had to ask...

I've heard that they put you to sleep for it. I think the worst part is drinking that crap they make you take. Blech!!

An endoscopy goes down the throat. Colonoscopy goes up the ...um...*awkward silence*

They do knock you out. The liquid is called barium I think.

The gallon of stuff they make you drink is called a few diff. things but one of the common ones is "Go Lightly"

This is one of the most incorrectly named things ever since it makes you do the extreme opposite LOL :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
