In August of 2012, I fell backwards down the garage steps. I busted my head and elbow. No stitches in the head, but I had a concussion. My left elbow took the brunt of my fall. I got five stitches. My elbow still hurts a good seven months later.
A couple of months ago, I slipped on the rug in the restroom and twisted my left knee. It took a while for the problem to show up, but I am having an MRI of my left knee-joint in the morning. The doctor is thinking I may have screwed up the cartilage in there and need to have it repaired. Hopefully, they will find the problem tomorrow.
I’ll follow-up with the doctor next week. I truly do not want to hear the s-word, but I do enjoy walking. As usual, it is in God’s hands and I will let him work his plan. While I take it one day at a time.
