    Well I went back to work on Monday. On Wednesday I stepped down off of a stepper reaching for our drinking cups at the store. I lost my balance and landed on the wrong leg. I was hurting really bad today. So make a long story short... I cracked my knee cap and come to find out I have fluid needing to be removed for the healing to take place. My Family Doctor agreed that the Orthapedics released me to soon to go back to work. I am going to see a Surgon on Tuesday. To have the fluid removed; OUCH I hear it is gonna hurt. I thought I would share this with you all.

    Dear Sister Styers;
    Patricia, if you have a good Dr, it's not nearly as bad as it sounds!
    Believe me, it can be a blessing! BTDT, more than once too!
    The trick is getting a GOOD Orthopedic person!!! That's usually the most difficult part, especially if they are a "company" Dr too!
    I'll say a Prayer for ya.:smile2:
    And, if you need to talk with someone that has been there, you know how to get ahold of me.
    Let me, and the rest of the Brothers and Sisters know how everything went. :smile2:
    Fraternally, Sincerely, and Cordially,
    Coyote1

    Not trying to scare you or anything but wanting you to be careful. A friend of mine had hurt his knee once before and wound up having an anurism. He stepped off of a platform at work and ruptured it. They had to wind taking his leg off at the knee. Again not trying to scare you but I would have them check it out very good. Hope everything goes ok.

    I would like to think each and everyone who has prayed for me on my knee. As of 3 p.m. Sunday, I went to the ER at 1 something and they took me on back. The Doctor called my new Orthopedic. And told him that I was in severe pain and could not strectch my leg out. And that he could remove the fluid himself.
    Well make a long story short I didn't know they had needles that long. OUCH! Is what came to my mind. LOL But they were gentle as can be even Numbed my knee.
    I can feel the difference. My knee has not bothered me today. But I still have to go to the Orthopedics in the morning. The crack in the knee is a what they call a hair line crack. Should heal right on up.
    Again thanks to all my brothers and sisters for your thoughts and prayers!

    I Am Ready To Go Fishing Now! :006:
