I have been dealing with a pretty significant knee injury since July 2020. I would rest my knee, it would get somewhat better, I would jump back into running, it would hurt, I would have to step back then start again. It got REALLY bad when we went on our Christmas Cactus trip where I could barely walk and daily tasks were hard. It is time to really take this seriously and go see the professionals.
I saw an orthopedic Surgeon to see what kind of damage we were dealing with at CUs Sports Medicine facility. Being back on campus made me miss the days I was there everyday for work. It is really beautiful there.
I got X-Rays and met with the doctor. There was nothing concerning to see on the x-ray so we decided to follow up with an MRI to really see what we are dealing with in there. I had to leave, wait for them to check in with my insurance.
I went home to play with the kiddos, it was cold but we still love a park visit.
Always outside as much as we can!
We have a lot of snow coming for us so we will play outside while we can, snow is fun but not at -6 degrees.
In the afternoon I was back at CU to get my MRI done, this was my first time so it was definitely an experience. I have a little claustrophobia so I was concerned, luckily I went in feet first and my head was outside the machine.
I am not sure I could handle a head in MRI, hopefully I won’t need one!
I was happy to get home and cuddle the babes. I am really hoping that I can heal up enough to walk around Mexico without pain and hike lots of miles over the summer.
