Monster Truck needs to get a tire fixed!   :mad1:

I think Monster is going through what I got through when I can't get on the court. He is staying away because it will just frustrate him, and intensify the withdrawls.
://
Not much happiness to report from the tennis front.  Haven't been on the court in well over a month now. :mad1: :(
My forecasted return to the game is still questionable.  I may try some non-competitive play in a few weeks after my follow up appt.
Must save remaining clicks on the knee for work.  Replacement is inevitable at this point.  Just trying to stall it a bit longer so I don't need the same knee done twice in this lifetime. ;-()

Sorry about that news. It must be frustrating.  I know several people who have had knee replacements. It is all pretty routine these days. General consensus is that the worse part is the post-operative physiotherapy  :mad1: . Try for a cute physiotherapist  :lust:  for some compensation.

MT, I'm very bummed to hear about your recent problems.  Since I don't know all the details, I'll continue to hold out hope that you can recover without surgery, though it sounds like you've resigned yourself to it.  Did the sprain happen on-court?  And maybe more importantly, will this affect your job much this coming summer?
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

The sprain happened off court.
I did it while watching a movie!  Very lame indeed! :\
After sitting through ceremonies and travel for over 6 hours that day (I'm usually on my feet all day), I reclined to watch a movie.
Had my feet elevated on a hassock for 40 min. and when I went to stand up it felt like a severe sprain.  Couldn't walk for several days.
Nearly a month later, after several bottles of Vitamin I and plenty of icing there is still some swelling.
I'm not looking forward to crawling ladders and being on my knees for work this summer. :(

That's a wierd way to get injured!  Sounds like, 'though, you should still give it time to heal on its own. A year or two I gave my knee a nasty knock when I fell running for a subway train in New York City. Much damage to dignity as well  :Blush: . The knee took some months before I could put pressure on it but it never became serious. They say it is a really complicated joint  :scared: .

Don't feel embarrassed.  The last time my back went out it happened FOLDING A BLANKET.  Dropped me to my knees!

It certainly was a freak way for it to cause such a severe problem considering how I tend to beat on my body.
I guess I should take it as a signal to ease up a bit.
:// to taking some time to heal.
Am taking it easy for now with no running, just a bit of walking and some table tennis.
I think I will stay off the tennis courts at least until spring.  Can't afford to injure it again before/during the exterior work season.
I may have to rethink my plan to sell the boat and truck!  Fishing is easy on the joints for sure. :))
