This is Day 2 of my injured knee.
I was hoping for something more exciting to show you guys, but the only thing to report is that my knee is still swollen, still hot, and is still a blotchy redish brown color. Apparently, all the cool stuff is happening on the inside. However, there has been a noticeable decrease in pain (thankfully), especially when I walk. I've up-graded from hobbling around to walking like a pirate with a pegleg. Try getting your pants on in the morning with a pegleg. Let me tell you, it's a challenge. You know what else is a challenge? Getting in and out of the car. I manage, but it takes a Herculean effort and about as much grace as a brontosaurus. Reminds me of when I was pregnant with my son....
Anyway, I've also remarked a few more bruises that I hadn't noticed before. In addition to busting my knee, I apparently also bruised my right side along my rib cage, the bridge of my nose, the tip of my right ear and my left arm between my wrist and elbow. (-_-)
On a more positive note, I now have a new found respect for my chunky thunder thighs. I've always been a bit self conscious of my legs, especially from the knees up. My thighs are, and have always been, stocky and muscly. Instead of a thigh gap, I have thigh flaps. But, I think the added muscle around my knee helped protect the joint from a lot more damage. Things could have been much worse had I had skinny little legs. So, from now on I've decided to give my chunky muscly legs a break and show them a bit more love and appreciation. :)
That's it for today, I (and probably you) should get back to writing.... ;) XOXO
