Monday's Really do Stink!

Title edited as to not pick up any pervs because I really wanted to use another word there!

So I am having to cover for another girl that does the same job as me while she is out on medial leave this week. I went over to the building she is in at 6:30 this morning and had no luck with getting logged in to her computer so walked back to my desk. It's 20 degrees out, it's been snowing so the sidewalks are icy and slippery everywhere. I waited to get hold of IT people at 7:30 and got my computer issues fixed and went back thru the cold and ice. I am not in the other office 5 seconds when my favorite jasper beaded necklace breaks and beads go everywhere. I pick them all up put them in a baggie and go to plug in my laptop. I'm under a desk plug it and go to get up and something in my knee pops. I sit down and think it's just a twist or something so I rest it. Try to get up a few minutes later and I can't, cannot put an ounce of weight on it and forget walking. I had to call Michael and have him come get me. This is a feat because I work on an Air Force base and he can't get on base. Someone I work with has to get me off the base to meet him. They have to find me a wheelchair and load me in a car. Fun huh? Get to the ER, nothing is broken but I have to stay off of it for 3 days, be on crutches and go to an orthopedic doc next week if it's not better. So how's that for a Monday?

So I wake up this morning after a pretty uncomfortable night and the pain is pretty much gone! I am amazed, thinking wow how can that be to go from so much pain I'm crying to almost none overnight? Well Michael says you better be careful you could tweak it at anytime so yeah, I'm being careful but still happy. Well 1/2 hour after Jake is gone and I'm home alone I tweak it bending down to pick something up. OUCH! It freaking kills again! So if I blabber at any point to anyone in the next few days it will be the percocet talking!

Hope you all have a better week than the start of mine!

OH gosh, Pam!! I hope it's nothing too serious with your knee, how painful! Hope it heals for you on its own. :) Here's to a MUCH better Tuesday (even if it's drug-induced! LOL)

:-( Sucks getting older, huh? The stupidest things happen and then they take forever to heal! Glad you were ordered to stay off the leg. Now follow those orders! Hope it feels better soon.
