As if the snow and ice wasn't enough . . .
So when I was at Chet's with my son in mid-March my left knee (back leg) swelled up like a balloon after the first set -- I mean like half way up my thigh. I skied with it two more days and then was home for two weeks before heading to Orlando and skiing with AM. Knee still swollen and not right. Now this knee has been sore and a little swollen the past 5 ski seasons, so it isn't a new problem, just new magnitude. MRI and it is a relatively minor issue of torn meniscus (both medial and lateral). Not a big deal in terms of a surgery, but dang it, I can't get it done for two more weeks, and then will have to let it recover for a few more weeks after that. Looks like I'll be starting my season in earnest in the middle part of May. Ah well, work is pretty busy right now anyway -- I guess I'll just focus on that for now!
