Have you ever popped your knee out? I think that’s what I did. Last Monday I had just climbed the stairs and was halfway to my bedroom when I felt excruciating pain in my knee. Somehow I managed to hop to my bed. My right leg wouldn’t support me at all.
I called my husband, asked him to bring my cane because I couldn’t walk. I needed to get ready for bed. He was upstairs quickly.
I tried the cane using my right hand, where I usually carry it to keep me balanced. That didn’t work at all. When I tried the left side I could hobble to do what I needed. Sleep was difficult because the pain wouldn’t let up.
I learned something new. Use the good side.
Tuesday I made it downstairs and made an ice pack. I sat in my recliner with a pillow under my leg to elevate it and the ice pack on top. This brought the pain level to manageable.
I rested it all week with ice packs when it throbbed. Yesterday, I went to church and then to the in-laws. My knee wasn’t happy. I used an ice pack and was able to fall asleep.
Today shall be interesting as we are going to Battle for Vegas, a charity softball game, put on by Reilly Smith. The Vegas Golden Knights face off against the Las Vegas Raiders. We had a blast last year. I know it will be fun again. I just hope my knee will forgive me.
Love, Peace and Light! Rita
