I had an MRI done of my knee yesterday to determine exactly what is wrong with it and how to fix it. The good news is that I can now walk, sort of. They gave me a walking locking brace for my knee so I can hobble. I've been using one crutch at the same time because my knee still feels unstable, but at least I can do things like carry a milk jug or my own purse. I am not comfortable carrying the baby around but I'll be more up to that maybe in a day or two.
The bad news is that they said it looks like I tore my ACL. The doc said they usually wait a few weeks to repair them, so I can have it done in Michigan after we get settled and things. Plus we'll be close enough to go to the U of M hospital, one of the best in the country (of course it is, GO BLUE!) so I'll be in good hands. Not totally thrilled about it, but it could have been worse.
I called my dad after I left the doctor, and he laughed. LAUGHED. I haven't heard him laugh that hard in a while. Gee, glad I amuse ya! :-) He mocked me too, said "Hold ma beer n watch me do this!" @@.
I can only hope that my children have inherited more physical grace and intelligence than I have.
