No surgery!!

I went to the doc and he told me I have acute, chronic bursitis from the injury. I have a couple micro tears on the patella tendon, but that could be from age and my weight. I also have some residual bruising on the femoral plataeu. He gave me a big ass shot of cortisone(which hurt like a mofo, btw) and put me on Piroxicam. I can skate again when I don't have pain and the swelling has gone down!!! I'm so excited!

Apparently, I'm NOT a multi-tasker

I've been SO busy with derby latetly, doing fundraising and whatnot, that I've neglected my blog and my bloggy friends.

What sucks even more is that I'm not even skating right now...during spring break, I fell and hurt my knee....pretty badly. I tried skating it off right away. That was stupid. I tried R.I.C.E. for several weeks before trying to skate again...but still the pain is horrible and just gets worse with every stride on the rink. I went to a sports medicine doc, because my regular doc just told me I should STOP doing derby(WTF??). I had an MRI last week and I go in today to hear if surgery is warranted. I'm almost positive it will be. He's pretty sure I have a torn meniscus and that I bruised the femoral plateua pretty severly....

I hope the news is good and that even with surgery, I will be back on skates in no time.

Oh...and Blaine is at Camp....The showcase is at the Bagdad Theater in Portland on Saturday night. She's super excited.
