The latest on my knee...

OK... it turns out my previous post on my knee was somewhat optimistic. In fact, it was very optimistic!. Since posting that I have been the physio several times, and my GP who referred me for an MRI. I received the results of that today... So, I have:
  • Torn my ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament)
  • Have some fractures in my tibia and femur. These are small fractures related to the impact of the bones hitting one another and twisting.
  • Bruising in the bone.
  • Grade 1 MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) sprain.
Needless to say, I will be off to see an Orthopaedic Specialist and surgery is inevitible. In the mean time, I'm not allowed to bear weight on my leg (particularly because of the bone damage), so it's crutches everywhere I go. I'm not allowed to drive either (because it's my right knee) which is frustrating and perhaps the most inconvenience. It's also a very busy time at work, plus commissioning is fast approaching.

I would appreciate your prayer support, for everything mentioned above, for my family who have to put up with my hobbling around now, and particularly for my longsuffering wife Megan. I don't think she realised when we said "in sickness and in health" that I would be "sickness" and she would be "health"! (See another previous post for even more detail on that!).

Further updates will come as I have them to hand. Thanks in advance for your prayer support.

Adam
