A little follow up to yesterday...last night I was putting things in my curio cabinet and I forgot and kneeled down. A pain so acute shot through my knee I thought I was going to pass out. R heard me scream (which is amazing because he sleeps through everything) and he threatened me if I didn't go to the Urgent Care place today he would pick me up and carry me there himself.
When I woke up this morning my knee had swelled up quite large and was bruised...and I decided for once to be a good wife and actually do as he said. It's probably a good thing because as it turns out my tendons are sprained and my knee cap is broken.
The doctor was dumbfounded that I was able to walk around on it for two weeks. I am one tough cookie! >=} At any rate I learned that only 1% of the population of the US ever breaks a knee cap. Kooky huh!
They put a brace and a splint on it and I am going to be referred to an orthopedic doctor tomorrow, and they will probably cut it open and wire it back together. Oh yay! If I keep doing stupid stuff, pretty soon my whole body will be held together with office supplies.
The good news in this is that even though I am ordered to stay off of it, I don't need my knee to sew bears. So currently I am still planning on having the update on the 2nd. If after I see the orthopedic doctor that changes I will let ya know. But I don't expect it to.
I will keep ya updated! Hugs, K. <3
