    Well working with the horses this morning at work- I was working with a youngster and he spooked and i tried to get out of the way of the spook and fell, wrenched my knee.
    I felt something pop- but thought I would be fine typical. As I was driving in the truck to my farm, I could FEEL it swelling. By the time I got there I couldnt walk and I thought I would have to cut my jeans off!

    Hubby took me to the ER and VOILA, they think I tore my ACL. I have to go see an orthopedic surgeon when the swelling goes down, and will probably need surgery. I am on crutches and a knee immobilizer.

    How the HECK am I going to feed and milk and care for my 30 goats and 5 horses. *sigh* :veryangry:

    Ouch, you probably did tear something. I had that happen before and it took two knee surgery's to fix. Well I never heard the pop, but my knee swelled up overnight and I couldn't walk on it.

    Hopefully your's will heal better than mine did. Best get into an orthopedic surgeon asap before scar tissue sets in and makes it harder to fix.

Hubby is going to be able to feed, but thats about it in addition to working full time, and now taking kids back and forth to school since I cant drive......I havent figured out what Im going to do with my 14 month old son that I cant pick up during the day by myself though

    What a mess- Im going to the orthopedic surgeon tomorrow.

    Re: Just what I needed

    Well they drained 60 cc's of blood out of my knee- talk about relief!

    I have to go back for an MRI to find out whats wrong next.....its not fractured- they took another set of xrays, they say torn ACL, meniscus, or damaged cartilage
