Re: Slip-sliding away...

...and now for the rest of the story...

Met with the ortho yesterday to review the knee MRI results. No meniscus tear! There is a stress fracture at the top of the tibia and stretched ligaments bilaterally and on the back of the knee. It'll ache for a few months but will eventually heal without surgery. Not my first stress fracture so I kind of have an idea what to expect for recovery.

Still, I was kind of surprised to find out about the two other previous, long-ago-healed fractures in my tibias.

Good on you, you dodged the bullet.

I don't think there are any shoes that will help you with boat ramp slime, it's gotta be among the most slippery stuff there is.

Right? Amazingly slippery stuff. If we could find a way to bottle it and market it for commercial purposes, we'd be rich! Picture Clark Griswold shooting down the hill on the saucer sled.

Re: Slip-sliding away...

John, sadly ortho said mri then probably surgery, then 6 more weeks of rehab after that! I did manage to read 22 books since June. Starting on Leonardo DaVinci's bio next, nice 4" thick volume of a book that should keep me from being bored Lol! Lots more books in my home library to read, over 400 to choose from.
