Well when I first sprained my knee I never would have thought it was something more serious.
When I went to the orthopedic the other day they took more x-rays and looked at the MRI results. I found out I have a fracture in my knee bone and meniscus erosion, but not a tear. How in the world did I ever do this?! I have absolutely no idea!
The nurse explained that this is usually common in long-time runners. Or a person with a leg injury and then it develops into this. It's very strange and random!
The bad news is that it could take anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months to heal. And I have to wear the huge knee brace at all times along with my crutches. The good news is I can still workout my upper body as long as I put no weight on my injured knee. So at least I can do something, of course with lots of modification. Anything is better than nothing!
At first I was feeling frustrated that this all happened since I love exercising, walking outside, and we had to cancel our white water rafting trip...but then I realized for whatever reason I am meant to slow down. I think everything happens for a reason and this also further confirms that I was not meant to do the figure competitions in September.
Walking around the city yesterday on crutches I would not recommend to anyone! Just walking 1 block from where the cab dropped us off felt like 100. I was so exhausted from the day that is my exercise for the week! haha.
I actually skipped my oats!! For the first time in probably six months I switched up my breakfast. What can I say I like the same thing? Smeared peanut butter and jelly on warm toast. Mmmmm deeeeelicious.
I hope I make it to the movies since there are some I want to see.
Anyone see We're The Millers or Grown Ups 2?
