What a buffoon! There I was running on slippery pavement when I felt a pop and that was that.
I was picking my son up from camp at the time and I had the dog with me so I had to drive (lucky for me, it's my left leg and I drive an automatic) to the ER. My SIL came to pick up the son and the dog and take them home. After a few hours alone at the ER, I was sent home with a prescription for Percocet and a referral to an ortho surgeon.
Of course, dh is in Malaysia and won't be home til Saturday.
I am feeling scared, worried and sorry for myself. Now, I need to get an appointment with someone who will see me ASAP and find out about surgery to repair the damage.
It could be worse. It doesn't really hurt right now -- it's just a pain getting around -- I hope the kids don't mind pizza for dinner every night. It's the only thing I can think of for us that I can have delivered.
Ok, gotta get calling some docs and figure out what to do next
Thanks for listening,
