Attending STC with injured knee
Hey, I'm a poet.
A month ago, I tore or strained my left ACL doing throws in my karate class. My doctor sent me to the specialist, who sent me for an MRI. I don't know the extent of the injury because the (insert various expletives here) orthopedist's office won't return a phone call for a follow-up visit. Calling to give people money and they won't take it. Geez!
Several times I had gone into my garage and sat on the bike, wondering how it would feel. Not too good, I decided. Yesterday, the knee didn't seem to mind being bent with the foot on the peg. I attempted a short ride, but the knee just wasn't up to it. The left peg felt as if it were 2-3 inches above the right. I made it 3 miles before turning around and heading for the barn.
I don't believe anything, short of a miracle, is going to allow me to ride to STC. I'm not ruling out a miracle, as I know they can happen, but I don't expect one. Ya'll won't laugh at me too loudly if I come in the cage will you?
Hey! I'm in pain here! Well, not so much anymore. Only after shortened range of motion is exceeded.
See you next week.
