Some of you know that we had to leave Roy's Fish Fry early and canceled on the 4B's and Eggs a la Bourbon due to a torn meniscus. Good thing we did. My knee threw a fit a couple of days ago, and I could not stand. I would have had to drink all the bourbon if we had been at Eggs a la Bourbon to cover the pain.
It took the doctor only half an hour this morning to tuck the folded meniscus back where it belonged and trim off the loose tissue. I don't even have to use crutches. I felt better walking out of the surgery center than walking in.
We were not sure I would be ready but we went ahead and scheduled a campsite for July 4 at Mississippi River Palisades State Park, so we can attend a family reunion back home. Now, since I should be fine, we can see some of those aunts and uncles and Mom who are getting up there. Kevin will have to take off the cover that he put on the Silver Cloud
. So depressing! Soon, we should be back riding bikes, canoeing, and hopping in the hot tub. I told the doc that he gave me back my summer.
Hope to see you at rallies yet this year and then not have to cancel next year.
PS: If you use plastic yoga steps as steps for exiting your camper, use a rubber rug under it. Ours slid out from under me on the asphalt when I was exiting the Silver Cloud
, and I hooked my foot on the door frame as I fell. I broke 2 bones in my foot, broke my leg, tore this meniscus, and broke 2 teeth.
