day 811 – teammates tattle tale

image

when things feel slightly improved i feel like i can be normal again but in reality i am far from it. shouldn’t be playing but here i am in full gear trying to give it a go¬†even though a dozen people didn’t approve of it and tried to drag me off the court. it’s a chance i wanted to take because i wanted to see what state my knee is in and what is it capable of, if anything. what can i say, i live on the edge with a life full of high risks

day 809 – sad knee

image

not a good sign when it twists laterally, makes a popping sound and then gives in. what looked like a harmless move wasn’t so harmless, afterall i am dealing with a knee that has a long history. got home in pain and to see it swollen only makes me even more concerned. there’s nothing i can do at this point except ice and rest and hope that it feels much better than it looks. the severity of this remains unseen but i do know for a fact that physio appointment comes earlier than initially planned and that i have a lot of options to weigh in terms of continuing with my plans this week. my kinesiologist never fails to give me the dagger as he forewarned me the possiblity of a ligament tear. i am still leaning towards taking the risks
