#ROW80 Check-in July 31st – oh, injury

This week’s been a bit rough because that knee pain I mentioned on Wednesday got worse in a BIG way. My hubby took me to Urgent Care yesterday and thankfully there are no ligament tears. There’s some kind of strain, the doctor said. He has me on a regimen of icing (4x per day) and motrin (2x per day). I’m also wearing a support sleeve during the day. He says it’s okay to walk on it, which is great because not being able to walk would suck.

(Don’t think I ever mentioned this, but I was in a car accident when I was 22 and hurt both my knees. Severe tendonitis. They gave me trouble for a long time, but eventually got better. During the worst of it, I used to wear a brace on the worse knee — my right. I was told that I’d end up with problems down the road. Ye Gods.)

So yeah, I’m doing okay, managing. It’s a bit tough to be productive when you’re in pain. So this weekend I got very little done. Hopefully next week is better!

Ever Touched – wrote 3,318 words, up to 95k.

Covenant – Thought about it Friday afternoon after everyone went home for work, but succumbed to my sleepiness instead (shh, don’t tell my bosses!)
294 words written today!

Water – Every day but two.

Exercise – Suspended till my knee is better. And it probably won’t be the bike anymore. 😦 Maybe walking instead.

Reviews – Finished one book. About to start another. (Getting more caught up!)

Secret project – Gave it some thought. Nothing on paper though.

Chocolate consumption: chocolate zucchini bread, chocolate chip cookies, WW Sundaes, WW ultimate chocolate ice cream bars, WW chocolate-caramel thingies.

  1. Hope your knee gets better, though I’m glad it wasn’t too bad. I used to run cross country in high school, and I’ve had knee problems ever since. Not constant, but it flares up enough to be annoying.

    Looks like you’re still making decent progress, though.

  2. Oh I love your quote under your blog title. That’s a great one.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your knees. I have tendonitis in the shoulders and I know how tough it is. Keep that chocolate consumption up. It has to help, of course. How can it not?

    95k is awesome! The highest I have gotten on a wip is around 86, so I am admiring your achievement. I hope your pain reduces and that everything lines up, so that you can get more done.

  3. Cate, that quote is from the song “Anybody Listening?” by Queensryche. I’m glad you like it.

    Hugs on the shoulder tendonitis. That must be really tough.

    Thank you for the kind words. I needed that. πŸ™‚
