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 hear you.

When my daughter was 3 or 4, we were at the playground. I was sitting on a piece of playground equipment, and as I got off, I slipped. My leg hit the bar in the same direction. I didn't break anything, but massively bruised the leg from below the ankle to above the knee, so bad they were worried about compartment. Further, I had to fly to Boston in the winter the next day. The NSA would not let me get out of it.

So, I hear you.

May you heal quickly.

These days, the NSA wouldn't want to get sued, so you wouldn't have had to go. Thanks...I seem to, so far, be healing quickly.
