This afternoon the church had an easter egg hunt for the children. We had a really good time. On the way walking out to the car somehow I lost my balance or something and I took a really bad fall. I don't know what happen really. The lady in front of me thought I blacked out but I don't think I did. I did feel dizzy afterwards but I think that was from the pain. Anyway my knee is busted and bruised. I was going to go to the ER but when I found out my copay was $250 to go to the ER I decided that I would wait till tomorrow to go to the dr. My copay is only $20 there. I hate insurance companies. I did manage to get my old crutches from the attic thanks to my dh. What a day.

Thank goodness the knee cap is not broke or shatter but I have to stay off of it for a couple of days. Looks like I pull ligaments and bruised it real bad. He gave me pain medicine so I will see how that works. I don't know how much I will be on here tonight. I might be sleeping.

Glad to hear you didn't break anything. I broke my kneecap once, and it was awful.

Get some rest.

It is a little better today. Still swollen and sore but not as stiff. I am so relieved that it is not broke or shatter. I had a lot of problems with this knee in college and had to go through rehab with it while I was in college because I injure it while sailing. The college paid for it since I was on the sailing team so I didn't have to pay anything for the rehab. The same now though.
