And Then It Happened

 A few weeks ago, right before the really nice weekend we had, it happened. I was looking forward to getting in one last round without dressing up like an Eskimo. Sometimes at the height of our reveries, when our joy is at its zenith... when all is most right with the world... the most unthinkable disasters descend upon us. While climbing down from a lift at work, my right foot missed the last step and went to the floor bending my left in an awkward position. I spend the weekend resting it, but it has been giving out on me. I finally caved and went to the doctor who ordered up an MRI which I had done this morning. At any rate, it looks like my year is definitely done. On the bright side, it didn't happen in the spring when the season is just getting started.

That stinks. If it was the rear ankle you might have a chance. The lead side is generally the more important side for that type of thing.

It’s actually my knee. Reading back, the word knee did not come out of my keyboard. Either way, it could be a long winter of recovery. They gave me the CD, but I have no idea what I’m looking at. 

Thanks everyone. I’ll use this post to keep everyone updated. My biggest concern right now is if elective surgeries will be shut down again.

It is as I feared unfortunately. The MRI shows a torn cartilage. I assume is the meniscus which is consistent with an injury where your knee twists while bearing weight. I am being referred to an Orthopedist. I'm still hoping that it isn't so bad that it needs surgery, but I will have to wait another week to see what he says.

Are you allowed to eat unlimited ice cream with an injury like this? I swear I read that somewhere...

The other downside is that I will need to cancel all of my drumming gigs that are coming up. 😡

I’m thinking this gets you out of shoveling this winter! Doctors orders you know.😀

My son still lives at home, and that is his job anyway. He is also in charge of putting lights on the house this year too.

Be careful what you wish for. It's scary what can come out of this brain. 🤪
