The weekend before last I was on a late night trip down our long hallway to use the head...and stepped on my daughters remote control car in the dark...causing my ankle to go one way...and my knee to go the other. Result...either a severe sprain...or a torn ACL. I have been laid up for 10 days now...and I'm beginning to get cabin fever...I've already went through the new release movies at the video store...watched oodles of documentaries on the Discovery and History channel...conquered all of Europe on the new Medal of Honor Allied Assault X-Box 360 game...set several new NFL records on Madden '08...read all of my new magazines that I have...came up with new and innovative ways to aggravate our Weiner dog and Schitz-Zu...and worked the hell out of my upperbody on the bench press back in my garage. (I've managed to get my benchpress back up to 275....That's all the weight I have...3 reps...and counting...Lol.)... have actually lost 13 lb due to the pain meds making me sick to my stomach and sleeping alot due to them....and have debated everything from FDR...to JFK...to the Israeli Mossaad...to what do you like to eat and what kind of cell phone do you use...on the message boards. I've been keeping my leg elevated...and walking on crutches when I go anywhere that involves alot of walking....I even used the motorized sit down cart at Super Wal-Mart...Lol. Which on a side note...it's amazing how rude people are to someone in one of those things...they won't even make an effort to get the hell out of the way...as they would if you were pushing a cart...I got to where I was ramming people before I got out of there....I needed to get out...before the cops were called...Lol. I sometimes have a problem with playing nice with the other kids...:wink: I actually walk better now...I can go in a straight line...with a slight limp...but any side to side motion causes my knee to collapse...and there is a popping and grinding noise when i try to bend it. I called up my human resources manager at work to see if I could come back to work tonite...he said he'd rather me stay off until I go to the Orthopedic Surgeon...GULP!...on Thursday to see what he has to say about it. Oh well...at least tonite Monday Night Football is on!!
