I went to the orthopedist today to get his opinion on my injury. After a three hour long wait just to get back to a room and a couple of x rays, the doctor decided that I dislocated my patella and I've managed to tear the tiny ligaments around the patella. He advised me to wear a special brace that holds my knee cap in place. It hurts SO badly! I really want to take it off but I can't. This injury is going to take six weeks to heal and I will have to go physical therapy. I don't know how excited I am about that. However, I'll be very happy if this heals before I leave for field camp. So, I will do what I have to do. Blarg.
