Ouch!

I mentioned that I hurt myself in an earlier entry. I generally have tight calf muscles and am prone to Charley Horses.

Anyway, last Saturday, while rosepurr and I were running errands, I was dashing across a street when I felt my calves pop. I hobbled to the side of the street in agony.

What I didn't know is that I had torn the muscles. In doing so, I broke several blood vessels. I bled into the muscle, causing swelling and bruising in both legs from the knee down.

I had hoped it would go away on its own, but by Thursday it was clear that I needed medical attention. We went to the ER, confirmed that there wasn't any break or any blood clot. The doctor said it was rare to tear both at the same time.

Anyway, without further adieu,
















BTW, it does hurt, but the pictures make it look worse than it feels.

Good grief! I hope you recover quickly!

By the way, have you read The Anthologist? Given your recent poetry kick, I think you'd really enjoy it. I did. :)

I haven't read that one. I tried Nicholson Baker once before and couldn't get into him, but I'm willing to give it another go. Thanks for the recommendation and sympathy.

Ouch! I certainly hope it doesn't feel as bad as it looks. Hope you're recovered soon!
