For those of you keeping score:
Old Age – 5
Neil – 0
I got my MRI results today...and it’s not the best of news. I tore my Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)...That guy is toast. They also saw two small tears...One on the back of the Medial Meniscus and one on the back of the Lateral Meniscus. And as a parting gift they threw in...Early Degenerative Joint Disease (Arthritis) which they made the comment of “It is REALLY unusual to see it THIS bad at the age of ONLY thirty”...Thanks guys!
I am going to do some physical therapy for a month and see how the Meniscus tears are doing...they are hoping those will heal up while I strengthen my leg. Then I’ll go back in a month and we can evaluate what I want to do at that point. Surgery vs. No Surgery, Bionic Leg vs. Peg Leg or Just sending me to the glue factory.
Kind of a bummer...but I guess that’s just how it goes. I am going to go investigate this thing called a Gym here at work and get going on that whole deal. Bums me out...I was having a really freaking good time playing soccer. Getting old is dumb.
