Today I took the day off work because I am starting to get concerned about the amount of bruising I am getting. It has been bad from the beginning after getting my knees scoped, but now not only does it look like someone took a bat to my knees, now it looks like I sprained both of my ankles. Here are two pictures I took today of my ankles.
Everything from above me knees to my feet has so much bruising I am starting to feel like Barney the dinosaur. I have committed myself to resting and icing for the next few days. Yesterday was a really bad day so I probably deserved all of the bruising, but I committed to hosting a bachelor/ bachelorette party and driving so I had to do it. After working for 7 hours I came home then went out to a bar to listen to a really good 80s hair cover band and didn't get home until 3am. I did sit the entire time (I am so glad I thought to reserve tables) but bar stools didn't feel that good on my knees. The only thing I have done today is sleep, wake up, tan for 2 hours, ice, nap, ice again, now I am in bed again. Tomorrow I have to go into work for 4 hours, but I will be able to sit for most of it, then I will come home and rest. Hopefully by Monday I will feel normal again and can start riding the bike.
