YESTERDAY DIDN’T QUITE GO AS EXPECTED

Yesterday was a normal day at work.
Nothing unusual happened.
My knee wasn’t any more painful than normal.
I took my pain meds regularly to try an stay comfortable and moving.
But……

At the end of my shift, I was walking across the car park and something literally went POP in my knee!!
OMG….the pain.
I couldn’t put my foot to the floor.
I was literally stuck in the middle of the car park thinking…. what do I do now?

I alerted work to the possibility I wouldn’t be in today.
I called the hubby as he was gaming in Northampton, so he could start on his way home.
I then took very slow agonising steps across the car park and finally made it to the car.

The relief when I sat down was incredible.
I then did something I don’t think I should have done and I drove home!!

When I got home, the kids helped me gather up a night bag…. just in case it was needed.
When Ian got home he took me back to the hospital.
After a bit of a wait I was seen by a Doctor who suspects I have something called a Baker Cyst and that it burst as I was walking across the car park.

Lovely!!

I have a follow up in trauma clinic this morning to get more information.
I have no idea what the next step will be or what the recovery is like.
I am at least hoping that when it’s cleared up, some of the pain I have been experiencing over the last couple of months may ease off a bit!!
We’ll just have to wait and see.

On the plus side, I now have the perfect excuse to literally put my feet up and binge watch movies!!
