so this is hardly fair: I spent most of the latter part of the day getting my left knee X-rayed. Nothing broken, and it doesn't really even hurt much, unless it kind of pronates? and then it hurts really a lot and I fall over. I can, however, drive just fine. So after my ankle rolled while I was standing on a stepstool (I swear, I felt the knee go strange, I thought "this could be serious," I hit the floor, I though "That wasn't bad! but what about that knee, eh?") I put it in an Ace bandage and watched a movie and then since it was swelling like a lot, I went to the Concord Hospital Emergency Room. Where I knitted most of a mitten. They eventually told me nothing was broken and gave me crutches and a nifty Velcro immobilizer and said to ice it and stay off it and if it wasn't a LOT better in two or three days I should go Concord Orthopedics.
They also gave me a prescription for Vicodin and told me to take ibuprofen. CVS was closed so I just came home, and I am going to go to bed. If I had had any trouble clutching in (or getting to the car), I would have called people (there are people I could have called).
It could easily have been worse. If I have much more good luck like this I may throw in the towel.
