*So yesterday was the first day since my trip down the stairs that I had any hope that perhaps I haven't done something permanent to my knee. Oh, and for all of you purists, if I did do something? The damage was probably to my MCL, that's the ligament on the inside of my knee. I will be surprised if I end up having to have surgery. Hopefully I can get myself rehabbed by the time I would be wanting to start running anyway! Is all speculation on my part... but I am feeling far more hopeful about it all. I will know more on Monday.
*Only now I realize that it's time to pack my bag for the hospital, for just-in-casies. And find a bed for the guest room. And hang a vanity light and mirror in the basement, and scrub the bathrooms (hasn't been done since the week before I fell.... EW!), and plan what the heck to do with the kids if I go early, and and and and and and..............!
*Pearl's birthday is the 9th, and there is the small matter of a cake; a point of pride for me that I be the one to make it. It may be a little less spectacular this year.
*As far as the induction goes? Yeah, I talked to the original doctor... it will be on Dec 3rd, or the 2nd if I am lucky and they can fit me in on their "surgery" day. I am annoyed but resigned, and at least gratified that the original doc had the grace to call me back himself and apologise.
