I are smrt

I was at the park yesterday with Julian. No matter how old you are, you're never too old to fall off playground equipment.

Fourteen x-rays later, it seems that I did not break either leg or either ankle. I did sprain my left knee (the one I had surgery on a few years ago) and my right ankle. Hooray! I am big boned!

It's going to take up to 6 weeks to heal, and I have to follow up with an orthopedist. More importantly, I need to now go buy a house without stairs. Stairs suck.

*EDIT* I attempted to descend a large piece of equipment where I am not small enough to slide down the slide. So, I tried to go down the ladder...but ended up putting my foot through where a bar should have been and ended up upside down, hanging by my calves and ankle.

I'd post a picture of it if I had one. (goes and looks)

Okay, found it.



All the way in back on the right is a tremendous climbing structure for kids. It has several ladders and two slides and a suspended bridge. I fell off the near side onto a metal ladder I was trying to descend.
