This time I even have road rash on my left shin- although the camera didn't pick it up well. I was so mad. I have finally gotten into a workout routine: run, weights, yoga, and nightly walks with the dogs. Now I have to put the runs and yoga on hold until the scabs build up enough to rapidly bend my knees and put pressure on them (during the cat pose, for example.) I'm going to be amping up my weight training, trying to compensate, but it's still going to be hard doing leg weights. Anybody in blogland have suggestions on low-impact workouts? Right now my knees are so swollen it's hard to make them straighten out all the way. *sigh* That's the way of life, right? My mom saw my knees a couple of hours after I fell and she kept saying, "That's how you spent most of your youth." Well, yeah, but it was fun then...the worse the wound, the bigger the props you received from your friends. Now I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to work tomorrow...I usually sit cross-legged on the floor and crawl around on my hands and knees.
On a good note, we had a great Mother's Day dinner at my parents' house. Laura was the focus of my camera - as usual ;) After dinner, she and Grandpa went swimming and had a great time.
