Heidi, I'm so sorry about your knee. It sounds like you're doing the right thing about keeping it propped up on the couch. Do you ever put ice on it? If the ice is too much for you, I find that wrapping a bag of ice in a thin towel and letting it rest on your knee (or in my case my hands) can help. I hope taking it easy gives you some relief.
So I'm not the only one with a spoiled dog. :)
