an epic tale

So the story is not nearly is cool as I would like...

In the basement of the hotel I was staying in this weekend was 2 inflatable moonbounce obstacle course things. You and another person each run into them separately and see who can beat the other to the end.

Well on my 8th or 9th time through I ran in cleared the first part completely airborne and landed 8 or 9 ft lower than my takeoff point. When I landed my right knee and ankle collapsed inward (landed on a slight slope) and I heard an audible snap.

I rolled over in pain and my right leg was completely numb thus I couldn't tell if it was my knee or ankle. I couldn't feel the source of pain.

I hobbled back to my room involuntarily shaking with a cold sweat. Woke up 3 or 4 times massively trying to sweat off a fever.

Went to the doc xrays were neg but she wasn't to confident in the state of my ligaments in my ankle. Lots of swelling and pain from my ankle up to my knees on the back and insides. She put a fiberglass splint on it to immobilize it until my mri tomorrow. I have bruising coming over the top of my splint at the base of my knee.

So moral is moonbounce obstacle course thingys suck.

They only suck if you screw yourself up somehow.

Which you definitely did.

Re: an epic tale

No surgery. Brace for 6 weeks then physical therapy.

Non surgical grade 3

Now to come up with a plan that doesn't involve my right leg
