Who would have thunk?

Who would have ever thought jumping up and down on a trampoline could cause an injury? I’m not talking flips, twists, tricks–just jumping up and down!!! Yesterday’s injury worsened overnight and here is what happened today:

Well, overnight, the pain increased and by this morning, it hurt pretty dang bad. I called my primary doctor to ask if I could go & have x-rays done when my husband came home from work (we only have one vehicle) and they said I had to go the ER asap because I could be damaging my knee by walking on it and it has almost been 24 hours since I injured it.

So, I had a friend from church bring her teenage daughter over to watch my kids & then she drove me to the ER. It was the first time I’ve ever left the baby with anyone other than my husband!!!

X-rays did not show any fractures, but the physician said I have blood in my knee joint and I have to go see an orthopedic specialist. Since he cannot be certain what is wrong, his guess is that I tore my medial collateral ligament. They put a knee brace on and sent me home with crutches. I’ve never used crutches in my life and they are NOT as easy as they look!

The funniest part is, they told me to stay off my feet as much as I can LOL…with 6 kids, that shouldn’t be so hard should it?

    AhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHHH……there, that was for you, I screamed for you. Do you feel any better. 🙂
    I can’t believe this happened to you. UGH. I left you a message also at MOG. I will pray for you and as soon as I figure out how to find your email address, I will email you personally. I have had an assortment of knee issues over the years so I can feel your pain and frustration. Have you had an MRI done, that is your best bet for finding out exactly what is going on.
    May God sustain you, my weary, injured, blogging buddy!!!!
    Praying for YOU!
