This time I went over on some ice and managed to twist my left leg underneath me when I fell. Same knee I broke a couple of years back, so it was already a mess. This just made it worse.
This actually happened last saturday, but after going to the doctors midweek I decided to go to the hospital later as it was still pretty damn swollen. I figured it’d be a quick check up and out the door.
4 hours and an x-ray later, they decided no bones were broken (although were strangely amused by the 2 screws in my knee from the previous operation). But as predicted, the swelling was too much to really examine it too much so Ive been booked in again in a week. Dammit!
I also got 2 shiny new crutches, at the cost of losing one of my 3 year old Glastonbury veteran crutches. That takes my total up to 5 now – 3 metal, 2 wooden. How depressing. But the worst part was that they’ve put me in some sort of velcro splint. Over the past 5 days its got to the point of me being able to hobble about on it with no pain, and now I’m worse off than I was 6 days ago – well, movement-wise anyway. At least theres no pain anymore – its nice being able to sleep at night!
Ah well, these seems to be a shrug-of-the-shoulders “it happens” moment. Work has sorted me out with a VPN so I can get back to working full time from home next week and I’ll have an online christmas shopping rampage this weekend, so neither of those to worry about.
I’ll be back on my feet in no time 😉
