a morning to remember

The morning I took this picture of my beautiful Yogi sis, shortly thereafter as she was doing a jump shot of me ... I slipped in the sand and reinjured my knee. Tore the ACL competely and also tore the medial meniscus. (I know! What the heck is a meniscus?!)


Last Thursday, I had knee surgery to reconstruct the ACL and repair the meniscus. It's been a week since then and boy what a long week that was! Just started PT a few days ago and it has helped so much. I'm feeling better and stronger and my leg can finally lift itself up and down the bed/sofa/etc. without any help. The simplest task now takes so much effort such as walking and carrying your own coffee cup to the dining table in the morning. Good thing there are lots of table surfaces in the house and I can transfer my coffee cup from one to another as I hobble along! :P


So I won't be posting new pictures for a while since I'm still on crutches and can't put much weight on the bad leg. But will try though to post a few older ones when I get a chance!


Happy Friday my flickr friends! Take good care of your knees! They're strong and fragile at the same time. And you definitely don't want to have to go through what I'm going through. {sigh}


PS - Funny that the knee got hurt during a photo shoot in which I was on the other side of the lens huh?! Guess that tells me something! :P
