All plans are subject to change. I will be unable to do the Laurel School Show.
I fell 2 weeks ago, landing on my knee, the one with the total knee replacement. It didn’t hurt right away, so I mostly ignored it and began preparing for the show. About 1 week ago, it began to hurt quite a lot. I also felt sort of a “twisting” sensation when I walked. I refused to go to the doctor, fearing I had damaged the implant.
At my husband’s insistence, I finally went on Monday and, good news for me, the implant was fine. I had just fractured my patella. Who is happy when they fracture their patella? Me.
I have to wear an immobilizer that extends from ankle to upper thigh. Walking is quite difficult and tiresome. Consequently, the show will have to go on without me.
