will i ever walk again??

Saturday, June 05, 2010

i know those of you who do read my blogs, know i had talked about going to have my hair done, and yesterday i finally did, while in the chair, processing, my mom and sister, had already gotten finished and went next door to kmart.
the rains came, and hard, we had downpours, with lightening and thunder.
fortunately for me, by the time my hair was done, it had let up raining and we drove to walmart.
it started raining hard again before we could even get parked.
so we found a spot up close and parked and sat and waited out the rain, then once it let up we made a run for the door....big mistake.
i dont know if it was just that i was walking really fast trying to preserve my new do, or my new running sneakers which were supposed to stand up to weather conditions...or the deep water in the parking lot, or the slick loading zone by the front door of walmart, or a combo of all...but i felt my feet going in different directions, i felt myself beginning to slip and slide...luckily for me, i caught myself before i fell in the rain...but, as i was trying to regain my balance, i did something to my knee...
at first, it just felt like i had twisted it, and i went ahead in the store, but after about 15 minutes, i had to get off my leg, i was beginning to hurt and walking was becoming harder.
my sister had to drive us home and i was unable to get out and go into the grocery store....
i walked into the subway to get dinner to bring home and i was in pain by now...
so, bill being off work last night, ended up taking me to the er about 10 last night...toradol shots and xrays and 4 hours later, i was told i had no broken bones....but i do need an mri, i have to wear a brace and walk on crutches, which i just cant do, i am in pain and cant exercise and i am miserable...

    Hang in there. Just try to relax a little bit and take it easy. You'll be all healed up and walking again (maybe running) emoticon in no time. Take care of yourself in the meantime.
