Now You Know the Rest of the Story.....

Growing up, my dad always listened to Paul Harvey. I've always loved his stories. Don't you?

Well, here's one for ya.

You may recognize these photos.
They are of me running out of Primary Children's Hospital. I just couldn't get out of there fast enough.

Well, I wasn't exactly JUST running. I was, as always, being silly. Dare I say, a bit too silly?

I was attempting to have my friend Michelle, take a picture of me clicking my hills in the air. My own personal happy dance, if you will. I had successfully completed the heel click twice before without a good picture of the move and was hoping that the third time would be a charm.

Well, it didn't really work out that way. Instead, my ankle rolled on the landing and my knee twisted and popped and I ended up on the ground.

So much for my grand exit!

Too bad Michelle is such a good friend. Rather than helping me off the ground she should have kept snapping pictures. She wouldn't make much of a photo journalist!

Instead we only have these pathetic "after" shots of my grossly swollen and very sore knee.
And now you know the rest of the story!


Mom, this is for you:
My knee is healing quite well. NO, I have not been to the doctor but I have been icing and elevating it diligently. It is feeling much better every day. I might even be able to get back to the gym by the end of the week!

Sister, that doesn't look so good! Glad you are on the mend. What if you had broken it and ended up in the hospital yourself for 10 days? Be more careful please! :)

Colleen said...

so pratice doesn't make perfect? just gives you messed up knees. feel better soon.

Oh wow that is so funny!! I 'm so sorry though it sounds like it hurt! I'm embarrassed to admit I would've snapped a bunch of pictures of you on the ground instead of helping you up! Your friend is nicer than me!

I can't believe you you did that! Sorry, but you should have gone to the doctor. You poor girl. But, I am so happy you are out of the hospital!

I guess I'd like to see the date on the last picture . . . if it is in the last few days YOU NEED TO GO TO THE DOCTOR!!!!!!!!!! I don't want you to have problems down the road! Please have it checked if it still hurts! Love you!

Ilene said...

Don't you love the irony?

However, it makes for a great blog post. Congrats on somewhat successfully escaping the hospital!

Bridget said...

You are so funny! Thanks for letting us know the story behind the pics.

I agree with Ilene...life is rich with irony, isn't it ;)

You are so funny! I laughed at your saying that Michelle would't make much of a photo journalist.

Ohhhh...your poor swollen knee :(

Hi Honey!
Just talked to you, but have to leave my comments too! I know how happy you were to be going home ---
but, please go see the Dr. next week if your knee is not doing a LOT better! You know I am talking from experience! It was good to talk to you and, I still say,
"Halleluiah"!!!!! Amen!
Love you!

Glad to know I'm not the only klutz out there! Hope you heal up fast!

I cannot do that heal click thingy though I've tried many a time. And I think snapping a picture in midair would be even harder to accomplish.

Hope it's feeling better by now!
