ipf4 Really hurt myself this time

A many of you know from FB, I had a pretty bad skiing injury on Friday. My first run of the day on Friday, a steep slope that I've taken hundreds of times, but first run and first day of skiing this year, I fell. Kind of a sit fall but I heard a pop. I know that sound too well. I stood up and Jim suggested I see how I was and when I had trouble making a turn and suggested the ski patrol, he thought I should get out of the middle of the trail and maybe he could get the lift attendant at the top of another lift to call the patrol. Well next turn was excruciating so it was time for the patrol. One just came over a rise and saw us. She called for a sled and I was taken down the mountain (my 3rd sled ride in my life).
They don't have a doctor at the base med. office but I know this injury too well. It was very painful - I can't straighten my knee or put any weight on it so assuming a torn ligament or two or meniscus tear or both. Same knee that I tore the ACL and MCL 28 years ago; the other knee I had torn the ACL and meniscus in 2003. I already had crutches at the house. and iced it for 24 hours. It's less painful than before and I've been able to sleep more at night. First night got 2 hours of sleep two times

So methinks I will never downhill ski again in my life. I just can't take this. I've skied since I was 22 and had many great years and love my second state of VT. Going back to NYC tomorrow for an ortho and MRI. So sad because I love skiing but this is way too impinging on my life when I'm injured this way. First knee took 6 months to walk normally.

So I apologize that I'm not on SM or my computer until just now and probably won't be for a few days. Painful to sit at a table, so using iPhone and it's a pain to post from on here.

Sending you all New Year's love and best wishes for 2013. I certainly hope it will be a way better year for all of us !!! Anyone who already communicated their care on FB don't feel compelled to do so here. I know you're all busy for NYE.

Such a shame Sue, and you didn't even get to enjoy the day skiing or even one hill. I hope it heals more quickly than you expect, and wishing you all the best for you, Jim, David and Tyler for 2013!

Oh wow Sue, how sad; not even getting to enjoy any skiing at tall!
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.

Like I said Sue, let's go to Virgin Gorda for some rehab. Water therapy. I'll take good care of you!

Feel better my friend. I'm so sorry this happened to you.

I would hate to live in a world without dogs, glass, or wine...
