Injury setback...(with photo)

Monday, June 30, 2008

Well, I had a family reunion on Saturday (June 28th).
It was a blast!
I went into the ocean a couple times, challenged by the waves!
...and then my 13 year old nephew lost footing and slammed into the side of my knee, knocking me on my butt HARD. I couldn't even stand back up for a couple minutes, so, the waves were beating me, too.
Now, I have lovely new "accessories", crutches and a knee thing...and a one week follow up appointment. Oh well. It was fun.
I can't exercise on our new stationary bike. That sucks.
The question is...would I have been in the ocean @ my former weight of 222 lbs? NO.
So, I think we are more inclined to have these types of setbacks as we become more active!

    I have advanced to a bending knee brace!
    One more week until I may be freed from it!

    I didn't realize how much using crutches helps tone the upper body!
    Blessing in diguise, maybe???
    I felt disproportioned, This might help me!

    speedy recovery to you! And keep blogging so we know you're getting better, okay?

    Cheers Nice Lady!

    You still look amazing even with your new "ACCESSORIES." Take in all your doctor's advice and take it easy!!! You deserve a break.. Do some chair execises if you must, that stationary bike will be there when you're better!!!
