Nervous healing

It has been three years since I had full sensation in my knee, but the nerves continue their slow repair. One spot -- one corner -- of my knee itches. Just above one of my surgical scars. It is just one nerve, itching, terribly. Intensely. Scratching does not sate it. I'm hoping that, having now reconnected itself to my nervous system, this nerve will now tone it down; maybe the rest of my nerves ("my brain") will tune this one out.

So itchy.

This post's theme word: quiescent, "dormant."
