We came in from the farmer’s market this morning, my foot caught the edge of a box in the living room, and I tripped, slamming my right knee into the hardwood floor. I scraped off some skin, and a huge purple bruise began almost immediately spreading across my knee. And it really, really hurt.
I was worried that I might have done some real damage. I made use of some Neosporin and a bandage (which refused to stay on, since knees were intended to bend). And held an ice pack on it for a while. The bruising began to visibly retreat. While it still hurts, it’s not as bad as it was. I even took a short walk this evening. So I guess I don’t have to make a visit to the ER today.
