But the good news is no fractures and no bone chips floating around according to the x-rays. The doctor had to laugh when I told him about stepping on SueSue when she was wanting to play the ‘ice game’. Turns out that my doctor has two mini-schnauzers also and his not quite one year old little girl schnauzer likes to play the ice game, too. While being understanding and empathetic, he also chastised me a bit for not coming in last week. While he acknowledges that I know my body he said he has seen hairline fractures in the kneecap and the leg bone that have not caused sharp pain. So if there is a next time, which I will try to avoid, I promised him I wouldn’t wait a week to come in and let him check things out.
So for all of you that yelled at me to go to the doctor… You were right and, although I will try to avoid any more injuries, if I have anything else happen to me you all have my permission to yell at me again. And again if need be.
Thank all of you for your concerns, prayers and admonitions. I will try to remind myself to listen.
