A little over a month ago I injured my knee skiing on one of our many snow days. Of course it was the last 100 yards of the last run of the day at 3:30pm. It was a beautiful fall, one of a twisting ballet move on one leg. Alas, no one saw it to appreciate the true fantastic nature of my demise! I thought I was fine, but after hobbling around for a week, I finally started the process to find out what I actually did. Through an MRI I found out that I tore the meniscus in my left leg. It is a “bucket handle” tear, that flips back and forth, causing my knee to catch, feel unstable, and shoot pain when squatting, kneeling, and twisting. I have arthroscopic surgery scheduled for April 23rd, which is over vacation. My surgeon suggested I take four weeks off, but that it too lang away from the kiddos, so I hope to be back to school on May 5th, teaching from my chair with wheels. If I find this is unrealistic, and I need to take another week off, You will all know immediately. I know this is not wonderful for anyone, and I hope to cause as little disruption to the student’s lives as possible. Thanks for your help with this.
