wow, ouch, sad...

first of all, i just wanted to point out that i hit my 600th post a few posts ago. Hard to believe it snuck up so fast eh? WOW!

okay, now for the ouch part of my title. i slightly tore my Right MCL today. I was doing a switch tilt leap thingy (in my jazz dance class. sorry if you don't know what that is, most of you don't.) and i landed wrong coming down. Which is a crying shame because it was an awesome switch tilt on the way up. I heard a pop and the next thing I know i am on the floor in a heap crying. I was carried to the training room and the ever fabulous trainer told me I slightly tore my MCL. He said it's really not that bad. Sort of like spraining your ankle, but in your knee. However, it hurts like (excuse my language) hell. I'm in a ton of pain, it hurts to walk and I can't move my knee without screaming out in pain. My eyes hurt from all the crying I've done today and I don't even have SwingKid to hold me and make it better. Curse him for being in Indiana....sigh. I will do my best to enjoy my weekend though. Lucky for me I didn't have huge plans. I WAS going to paint a room on Monday, but that's not going to happen because I can't stand on my right leg very well. If you have any good movie suggestions for the weekend, I'll gladly take them. :) OUCH!

And as for sad...that's where crying and missing SwingKid comes in...but only because I'm in a ton of pain. Lucky for me I should be good to go in a week or so, at least...that's what the trainer told me today. Let's hope he's right.  SAD!

If you want to borrow some crutches, I have a pair that I got when I had knee surgery.

I vote that you watch "Better off dead. Amazingly funny movie.

I'm sorry I am not there to make it all better! I'm sending you magic Becky healing powers over the internet......

Hope it is just your MCL and not your ACL. As you probably remember, I've torn my ACL twice and it is not a good experience. MCLs can sometimes heal on their own if you take care of them properly.

Make sure you stay off it and ice it as much as you can. I'm sorry that happened! :(
