I am so domestic I even have 'housemaids knee'. I think.
For the last two weeks I have been complaining that my knee is bothering me. I generally complain a lot so Chris doesn't pay much attention to me. My knee hurts when I kneel to give Sophia her bath or in general when I bend. It also gets aggravated when I do small fast movements like removing forgotten garlic bread that's on fire in the oven. That's another story. Ahem Sara.
Anyways last night I looked at my knee while I was sitting and noticed how swollen it was on the side. I have this huge lump on my knee. It freaked me out. I had instant thoughts of tumors, cancer and everything awful. I ran and showed Chris and was like "see, see I am not making it up my knee is messed up and scary looking!!" He agreed. Now I am all worried so I looked up knee swelling on Google.
I found this ....
"Prepatellar bursitis, also known as housemaid's knee, is a common cause of swelling and pain on top of the kneecap. The name "housemaid's knee" comes from the association of this condition with individuals whose work necessitates kneeling for extended periods of time."
I am so domestic always cleaning and working long hours on bended knee that I now have a condition. Heehee ok I may be exaggerating a bit. Never the less I am still a bit freaked about seeing this lump on my knee. Sophia has her 9 month well baby check up on Wednesday so I will ask the Doc about my scary looking and uncomfortable knee.
