Ouch! Fractured my kneecap while on "vacation".

March 25th, 2008 at 01:30 pm

March 15th,the very first day of my vacation, I ended a very nice day, at the Stock Show in Houston, TX., by walking back to the hotel, in the dark, and "discovered" that the parking lot had an unexpected dip!
I wasn't paying attention, and fell on my right knee. It is fractured, and is a pain in more ways than one! Extra expense, co-pays, and not being able to do everything I want to do, is the worst of it.
On the savings, front, I added $272.79 cents to my ING account. Most of that was money budgeted for the vacation and not spent.

    Owh, owh, owh! Gosh, was there anything medicine could do for it? Seems like you'd just get the ice it and stay off of it advice.

    They gave me an "immobilizer" which is like a removable cast. It keeps the leg straight. I can put weight on it when it is straight, but not when it is bent. There is some ligament damage too, but hopefully, it will heal along with the fracture.
    It will be another month before I can go without the portable cast. At least I can take it off to shower, and no itching!
