No, this is not about beautiful Brad Pitt as Achilles. It's about the tendonitis I have in my Achilles' tendon. It's only in my left leg - the totally screwed up side. The tendon is shorter on my left leg because I can't straighten the leg (due to the knee cap being removed when I was just 18). So, the exercises I have been doing only injured the left leg. I went to a new doctor, Baxter, on Thursday. He told me to return to exercising lightly and keep stretching the tendon. The podiatrist had told me not to exercise and not to stretch.

I am starting to feel a bit better. It is amazing to me how foot pain totally trumps knee pain. I didn't think anything could beat my knee in pain. But, feet are even more important.

I'm hoping that I might be able to visit Kevin in NYC before August!
