I got thrown a bit off my stride — literally — yesterday, when I learned that my knee is in worse shape than I thought. It’s definitely fixable, but it will take time. I’ll find out in a week or two if I need arthroscopic surgery.
In the grand scheme of things, this is a very little deal, but complicates my life. I’m usually a binary person. Either I’m not moving at all (typing or reading), or I am moving, very fast and efficiently. Slowly limping around with a cane is a level of inefficiency that frustrates me a great deal.
I also hate having to stop my martial arts training. I’m at the age where missing a week has a bad effect on me. It will therefore be a challenge to get back up to speed if I miss a month or more.
On the good side, my kids are helping with household chores without argument. They may end up taking something very positive away from this experience. That’s certainly something to celebrate
Since I’ve been confined for the last 24 hours to comfy chairs with my leg elevated (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation), it’s been hard to blog. In theory, I can write on my iPad. In fact, my WordPress doesn’t work well on iPad, and that doesn’t even take into account that my typo level increases like crazy on the iPad keyboard.
I will write today, but I’ll definitely be less productive.
