Hello friends :) What a fun/painful 3 days back I've had! So sorry I haven't shared our 'welcome back' activities yet. Let me fill you in on what happened.
It was Sunday afternoon. I had just pulled into my driveway after a 2 hour drive home from my parents house. My two chihuahuas (Lola and Liam) were in the car with me. I park in the driveway and bring the dogs into the house then went back outside to unpack the car! Apparently, I did not shut the door completely and Liam managed to escape somehow. This is the little culprit:
He may look all sweet and innocent, but man is he a handful. I seriously love him though. How can you not, look at that face! Back to the story - so I turn around to see him darting down the driveway. I started to run to chase him when I twisted my knee in a very wrong way. My entire kneecap dislocated and was on the side of my leg (sorry to be so graphic). I literally collapsed to the ground on top of Liam, throwing my iPhone and iPad in the air. Thank god I did not break any of those three things. So I carefully straightened my leg and pushed my kneecap back into place. I rushed off to the emergency room. They were so completely useless. They didn't take one x-ray or even look at it. They gave me a leg immobilizer and crutches and told me to get to a specialist when I could. Grrrrr. So I have been on crutches alllll day the past 3 days. It is excruciating. My knee is like throbbing and my arms are so sore because I'm a weakling. Thank god my kids have been so good. They are so sweet and have helped me out a ton! I finally went to an orthopedic specialist today and the outlook is not good. I'm going to have to have surgery! AAAAAH! I'm so stressed and scared. I felt like puking. I don't really have many details yet, I'm getting an MRI tomorrow and going back in on Friday. You guys, this sucks. I'm feeling very overwhelmed. I need some happy thoughts and love sent my way if you have some to spare! What's a kindergarten teacher on crutches to do?!
But in the end, it will be ok. ( that's what I keep telling myself at least!) I will be back later this week to share our week with you. I haven't taken as many pictures as usual due to the lack of hands. I'm sure my kids are happy not to be blinded by my flash all day! Ha!
