First and foremost – I am alright.
But I spent the afternoon in the Emergency Room.
I’ve been suffering (and ignoring) a pain behind my knee. About a month ago, I twisted my ankle on a walk. Simple bad footing on uneven pavement. As it healed, I developed this pain behind my left knee. I shouldn’t have let it go this long without seeing a doctor. Well today, I was climbing the stairs at my mom’s house – and POP. Down I went. Couldn’t walk anymore.
The xrays confirmed nothing is broken, and my knee looks structurally sound. It’s muscular. They don’t ‘think’ the muscle is completely torn, but only time will tell. I’m in a knee brace. Can’t walk for the next 3-5 days. Sitting on the couch….with my anti-inflamatory and pain meds. Gotta see an orthopedist next week.
Ahh….never a dull moment.
I AM grateful that (at first blush) it doesn’t appear as bad as it could have been. Some days…in this happiness journey…..you gotta look really small to find the good stuff. That was today! #ChooseHappiness365 (193/365)
Ciao for now….Diane
