08/28/10 (post-klutz report)

Allrighty....well, it's been two days since my wipeout...since my knee (and elbow) were intimately introduced to a certain stretch of very un-forgiving pavement.

I had a little mini breakdown last night....stressing about this backpacking trip to Glacier National Park I'm supposed to leave for at 6:00 this morning.

I had a hard time walking around Walgreens yesterday when I went to go get my pain med prescription filled (to have with me on the trip, in case I need it) the idea of backpacking, with 30 extra pounds on my back....really terrified me.

Hubby called his brother, the doc, and they talked about it. I'd been icing it...elevating it....and taking anti-inflamatories...but he wanted me to wrap it up as well.

After wrapping it, I was walking without a limp, and going up and down stairs. Crazy amazing thing..the ace bandage.

So....I'm going on the trip. I have two days in a car to rest it some more, ice it some more, and work on getting that swelling reduced even more.

Wish me luck!!!!!
