Knee 4, Dave 1

Dave

I had a couple of weeks there when I ran a couple of miles. Walked/jogged, really, but the distinction isn't so important right now. The point it, I felt like I was making progress.

In case you're keeping score like I am, I'm into another two weeks of who knows how many with no running. After being encouraged by the doc that this was just some inflammation in the ACL, I figured  the shot and another week of rest would do it.

Didn't.

I'd call things maybe 80% better. Most of the time it's not bad. Sometimes it's even good. Then I'll stand up from a chair and the first step is pretty excruciating. Sort of like PF of the knee. Takes quite a while before it feels OK again.

So I'm going to sign up for the extra PT and I hope they can get me back the rest of the way. I'm just so afraid that this pain is a sign that there's still something damaged in there and that I'm going to do something to make it worse. I trust the Amazing Amanda, though, so if she says I need more PT and less rest, that'll be good enough for me.

Finished painting, doing the laundry room last weekend. I did want to do the stairs to the basement as well, since it still has the old yellow, but I ran out of paint. Don't think I have time now until after this coming week with the kids all coming home. Mrs. Dave will probably have something else on my agenda the next two days.

Anyway, that's all I got.

i’m fresh off a month of hallmark christmas movies, so i know how this ends. spunky runner gets hurt, worries he’ll never run again, goes through tribulations in act 2 that make him appreciate both the strengths and the adversity of his life, and is content with whatever fate he is handed. he comes across an old guy with a white beard and uncanny resemblance to a jolly old elf. then on christmas eve while painting the attic, he notices his knee doesn’t hurt. he remembers his promise to santa: “if i am able to come back, i will run a trail marathon.” movie ends with what may be a sled crossing the night sky. 

downside: you are played in the movie  by “full house” middle sister jodie sweetin. sorry.

Sorry, Dave. I'm at two years and counting. Hope things will be different for you.

I'm sure it's really difficult to be patient. Hang in there!

Every last half mile is tough going on a run for me. But not running is tougher. Hang in there.
