More than a month ago, I hurt my knee. I don't know how -- I woke up one morning and I couldn't straighten it. It was locked in place and screaming pain would shoot through it when I tried. It took me more than half an hour, lots of tears and finally just DOING it (like ripping a bandaid off) to get my leg uncrooked. But something happened to it and it hasn't been right since.
It took a couple weeks of wrapping it and babying it until it felt *mostly* healed. I'd still get a twinge if I tried to squat or kneel, but I could walk, run agility and more with no issues.
Until Sunday. Sunday, during a walk, I felt something ... move. It didn't hurt then, but I knew something had happened and sure enough as the day progressed, the pain began. It's not unbearable, but it is uncomfortable.
The worst part is this: The Deerfield Fair is this weekend.
I don't know if you remember, but last year for the fair I was sick.
DD loves the fair more than she loves Christmas. She talks about it all year long, marks off her calendar for it, saves up money to spend at it. It is, without a doubt, her favorite day of the year.
It requires a LOT of walking. And standing. And I hurt my knee.
I swear, I'm cursed. I can't remember the last time we went to the fair when the weather was pretty and I wasn't hurt or sick. It's ridiculous.
Anyway, I'm babying my knee again for the week and if I have to, I'll use crutches to go. Because, I'm not disappointing my DD. But MAN does it make me angry... *sigh*
