whoops...I broke it.

well, not really 'broke' but screwed up..
my knee
I was practicing knife fighting (I know)
in self defense class.
planted my leg to my left..
did a fancy shmancy move to the right..
and popped it.
and ended up in the emergency room
where I was told I probably had a torn meniscus
which I can cut out with surgery
which will leave me permanently lopsided.
or I can try to heal...
which will leave me with clicking.
and locking .
I opted for clicking and locking.
I am of the
"once it's gone it ain't coming back" school
So the 'challenge' now is figuring out how to exercise minus one good leg..for the next 8 weeks or so.
I am going to trying one legged rowing today.
maybe swimming.
walking is okay after a week or two.
I can still do toning for upper body and abdomen.
I'll be fine.
Keeping my calories intact will be that much more vital now.
kind of ironic..
isn't it.
Will write more later.
Chris out.

All I know to do is pray for you. I am not sure I believe everything doctors say anymore. Maybe it will come back just fine. Dream big. Pray bold.

Oh no! I think you probably made the right choice in avoiding surgery. Just take it easy while it's healing and you should be fine. Good luck!

Chris, I'm so sorry to hear that! I will definitely be in prayer for your absolute FULL recovery!
