That would be my knee wrapped in 2 different braces.
On Monday morning’s walk with Lucy, she and I turned one way (squirrel), but my knee went the other. I heard/felt a POP and suddenly I couldn’t walk. Usually, I have pretty good ninja-like squirrel-avoidance skills, but we were walking with a couple of Lucy’s friends and I didn’t have the room to maneuver around quickly enough. That, or it was just my dumb luck. Ugh.
I went to the doctor (you know it’s bad when I actually go see the doctor) on Wednesday, who took one look at it and referred me to the orthopedic surgeon. Guesstimate: torn ACL/meniscus (most likely) or broken bone under my knee cap (less likely). I had x-rays taken and went home.
I see the orthopedic surgeon on Monday, and in the meantime I’m supposed to stay off of it, and keep it elevated/iced. Needless to say, there will be no running in the immediate future :(
I’ll post an update as soon as I have a diagnosis/prognosis.

Thank you!! <3
Oh no!! Bummer!!! Big hugs!!
Thanks! <3 I'm starting to feel like every time I begin a training program, I'm jinxing myself :/
Like me getting to about 2 weeks before a half marathon and then having some issue. One of the reasons I stopped racing.
Exactly. It’s another reason why (when I do decide on a race) I don’t register until right before race day!
Oh boo! Sorry to hear this! :(
Oh NO! Healing prayers are being said for you!
Man, that sucks! Hang in there, you’ll be healed in no time! I’m around if you need to vent, cry, scream, whatever! <3
