I don’t have the best of luck, but I wouldn’t classify myself as a klutz. Well, considering the past few days… I might reconsider that.
On my way to my friend Lindsey’s, I slipped on the bus. Nothing too major. Just a little embarrassing. My left leg went forward and I didn’t. I was able to catch myself and was fine. Just ended up with a nice little bruise. See:
Okay. So I slipped on the bus. No biggie. Then yesterday happened.
I’ll spare you guys any image of my knee. But yeah. It hurt. A lot. And was sort of an eery repeat of Saturday. My left leg went forward and I went down. Only this time there wasn’t anything to help me catch my fall. So I fell on my knee. I was only a block from school, so after the help of some guy cleaning the alley, I got up and hobbled over. We may not be the type of institution that has a nurse, but we do have a good first aid kit. My knee was gross. Bloody and swollen. I made it through class with an ice pack and my friend vicodin. After class Nazlah helped me get to the train, and Bryan made sure I got home all right (and did pretty well at trying to cheer me up too).
My knee’s feeling a bit better today. Not stinging as much. And this afternoon it stopped bleeding — I thought there was a gash, but turns out it was just a lack of skin. But the lack of bandaids has forced me to air it out, thus it’s stopped bleeding. It’s still swollen, but I can bend it some without screaming. But now that my knee isn’t in a ton of pain, I’ve noticed my ankle hurts. Probably just hurt it when I fell, or just sore from all the hobbling.
Anyway. After two falls from just walking… I’ve decided I need to be in a bubble. So we know my weekend, how was yours?
