sprained knee

Tuesday I sprained my knee catching my father as he fell. We both landed on the bed, but my foot stuck to the floor, so my knee bent sideways. Spent yesterday in ER,  being xrayed and acquiring a knee brace and crutches. My best friend's daughter is staying with us, helping out. Not being able to carry anything while using crutches is very annoying. Will catch up with blog later. Tired now!


  1. Oh noes!!! I sure hope it gets better soon. Do everything they tell you! I can so relate to the not being able to do anything. It's claustrophobic, almost.

  2. Oh no! I hope that both you and your father are okay. Sending you good wishes!

  3. Get a walker, and hang a bike basket from it. I had to use one for months when I ruptured my achilles tendon. Made me feel awfully old, but at least I could transport things from point a to point b.

    So sorry you got hurt! I hope you heal swiftly.


  4. Oh no! Hope you feel better soon. Lucky for you you have someone who can help out.

  5. So sorry to hear, that sounds like huge pain, in every sense of the word!

    Feel better soon!

  6. Sorry to hear about your mishap, Solarity! I haven't been blogging for the last while, so, didn't realize. I hope you're going to be fine soon, and am glad to hear that you have a much needed helper!
