Thanks, Sylvia. It really is a loss to me. I love to ski but can't take this anymore!

Sounds very painful and long recovery. So very sorry this happened.
Skiing is such fun, but injuries definitely put a damper on that fun!
Try to be patient in your recovery.
Hugs,
Thanks, Claire. Trying to be patient about it and put a good spin on it though can''t think of one now. Oh, maybe the money I'll save on lift tickets.

Thanks, Debbie. I can't straighten my leg or bend it all the way so think it's somewhat serious.

Feel better my friend. I'm so sorry this happened to you.
Robin - I'm ready. If only I could pack my bag. I guess i could try to smash clothes in with my crutch.

Thanks, Walter. I hope so too. Glad I got pix of Christmas reveal of all your SS gifts. I'd never make it down on the floor, or up, right now.

At least I got in many years of skiing but with some breaks after my injuries. I'll have to look back fondly at my youth when I used to fly down the mountains and do moguls like they were nothing.

Marisa - what you said is true. Head trauma far worse. That's why we all wear helmets. I wouldn't ski without it! Have had a hassle trying to get an ortho to see me but am set for next week. Yup nothing until then and most offices said they could see me Jan. 28

Thanks, April. I did this to myself almost 30 years ago so I can't blame age alone. Just bad knees

I feel your pain as I felt a pop in my knee when we were in NY helping to get my Mom up after she fell out of bed. Had to take her to the ER and she pushed 2 vertebrae, L5 and S1 slightly forward and is in excruciating pain. This happenned the day after we got to NY. The first day we checked the basement in her house and it had about an inch of water on the whole floor, the ceiling was sagging in one part under the bathroom and a flood of water came out after we punctured it. Turned out the toilet was leaking. We spent the whole night mopping up and dragging all the wet ,sopping stuff upstairs and outside. We had just gotten to bed around 4:30 am and my Mom fell out of bed. She lives with my sister, so to give my sister a break we took her to her house and then the fun began.Needless to say this visit was a disaster.
I really hope for you that this is not a serious injury. Feel better soon. I can't wait until this year is over and that 2013 will be awesome for all of us
Wow, that sounds like quite a bad time that you all had Hope you're all better now. I'm just hoping I can do rehab again and not need surgery but not sure.

Thanks, Michelle. I luckily had so many years on the slopes enjoying it. Nothing like a cold crisp clear day. I try to avoid the other ones. Hope my only hobby won't be knitting.

Sending you virtual hugs my friend.

ps
I know too well how those phones are a pain to post on.
Kandis - did you need surgery or just rehab? I got by with rehab both times.

In the mean time, we'll just call you Hop-a-long Cassidy..errrr....Sue.
Pat - I could be who was it? Festus on Gunsmoke limping along saying "Marshall Dillon. Marshall Dillon." Yup I think the only activity I should have on vacation is lounge chairing. Wait, didn't I get sun poisoning last year? Arghhhhh

I'm a "Black Diamond" girl at heart and it's not just skiing that we experience. . .the lodge, the cocoa, the little kids in pink snow-suits, the clean air and amazing feeling of snow all around us, winters joy is a bigger part of the reason we love it. It's still yours! Vermont is your second State. Just think of doing donuts on a snowmobile - now that sounds fun!
Happy New Year Sue. Many good times for you ahead!
Marie - thanks so much. Really made me feel better. Not sure if my knee even fixed will hold up to snowmobiling but there are gorgeous horse drawn sleigh rides and snow shoeing. I'm hoping to be able to cross country. I love that more than downhill on some days. I do have beautiful views from my house too. I should really be thankful for what I have!! Thanks for reminding me of that Marie.

Thanks, Janene!!

I have an appt with an orthopedist on Monday and with another one on Wed. That was the soonest I could get. All your good wishes are really helping. Kind of painful to post -- sitting at desk -- but will try.

(Kandis - did you need surgery or just rehab? I got by with rehab both times.)

Sue-- Sorry I can't remember what type of knee injury you have. I had one fall/sliding sideways is more like it down an icy slope (far) which I went to rehab, can't remember how long though. I had that common surgery torn meniscus. Since you only had rehab, maybe that is all you need and you will ski again. Did you get MRI yet? That's how they found mine. Listen, I think I know what she meant when she said you prob won't ski agian in VT. I knew my leg somehow would need surgery when it happened. I felt / heard it tear. It hurt a lot for a bit, then eased off and was a dull ache. Couldn't really do much. After surgery it healed great, BUT when I ski I can tell it's not a 100% knee esp on turns. So I'm tentative on ski's and that is not safe thing to be. So that's not really skiing like before is it. I ski the bunny slopes or sit it out. I haven't been in a long while and who knows with this economy if when we will get everyone together again to go to CO. I love Colorado so much. But I have always wanted to go to Vermont too.
I hope you can get the surgery whatever kind and ski again. don't give up hope yet.

Thinking of you and sending you hugs of healing!
The pain of knee problems can be so debilitating (I have lots of knee issues ).

Sue, I know that's so disappointing! It's was always my biggest fear to injure my knee when we went skiing! You'll just have to take up snowmobiling or cross country skiing I guess! Or what about snowboarding? I could totally see you on a snowboard! I didn't read through the whole thread, but I'm guessing you'll be having surgery? I hope you're feeling better!!

Kandis - I will likely need to get an MRI once I see the doc. I need an Rx to get one. I won't even do bunny slopes after this.

Celeta -- snowboarding I'm way too old for that. Then I'd probably break my butt or my face!!! I'm actually hoping I can rehab again but will have to see what the doc says. I'll let you know.

Thanks so much, Alexandra. Since you're a skier too I know that you know how hard this will be never to do it again but it really ruins the rest of my life when I'm out of commission for months. I'll just find other things to do

Thinking of you Sue---as I said on FB you always do things in such a grand way!
I know you love to ski so am sad w. you that it is looking less likely in the future! There are many things in life (good ones, I mean) that we have to give up someplace on the journey, it is always hard to do and we normally fight it. I hope you can make peace w/what ever you are called to abandon & embrace some new things that will fill up your heart to overflowing! Sometimes the things we leave behind make new spaces for significant discoveries!
