I am in Idaho for the Holiday season and I was so excited to get here. My family is so fun and I was extremely anxious to play some volley ball. It is one of my favorite things. Cory and I were able to play last Wednesday night with Maja and some of her friends. It was awesome and we had a blast. The next night we went to play with some old friends. They still play every Thursday night and it is really great. We went and I was having fun and I went up to hit. On the way down my knee went all skiddywompus. The lower half of my leg went one way and the upper half went the other :( It hurt so bad and we ended up in the emergency room. I have an immobilizer for my knee and today we saw a specialist and I had an MRI done. It is official. I have a fracture and multiple bruises to my bones. I tore completely through my ACL and partially through my meniscus. There is a possible tear in my cartilage and my knee is GINORMOUS. I will have to have knee surgery for sure, they just don't know when. My bruises need to heal and my swelling needs to go down.
We had a hard time finding a doctor that would take me and my insurance. We finally found a doctor in Blackfoot who saw me and my sister had to drive me over there. On the way home the breaks in Cory's car went out. It sounds scarier than it actually was because we were going sort of slow at the time, but it was just bad luck. My grandparents called triple A and they had to drive up and get us. They are really amazing. We made it home and that's as far as we have gotten. We are just trying to stay positive and I really appreciate all of the help everyone has given us. This is also a heads up to the people in Pittsburgh. We love you guys and will probably need a few favors when we come home. Ill try to keep updated so the 4 people who read my blog will know whats going on. :)
