Well, with parts of the ground I was clearing covered by small loose stones, other parts covered in matted down grass that was slippery. With all that under foot, I went down on my left leg which twisted slightly so the side of my knee hit the ground on some rock. I can walk perfectly well but any bending of the knee is painful not in the front, and not in the joint, but across the back of the knee that also stiffens up seriously whenever I sit for more than about five minutes.
After several days of doing all the right things with no improvement, I went to the doctor Friday for an exam and x-ray. I'll hear the results tomorrow. Meanwhile, I'm doing a lot of work in the house. Our Christmas gifts are 90% wrapped and at least 3/4 of the cards are addressed and stamped. I've never been this far ahead before!
Congrats on your Christmas shopping/wrapping. Fred does all of it at our house. I basically just show up on Christmas morning and take pictures.
Your Friend, m.
Best of luck with the knee. (I'd say break a leg but I think you might take that too literally.)
