In what might be the most brief Skiing career in history, I took to the slopes on saturday for the very first time. A natural, I only fell twice all day. Unfortunately, the second involved a body twist and impact on my knee in which something popped leading to excruciating pain and a lift on a snowmobile to a first aid tent.
Two parallel days later, I can neither walk nor put any pressure on the joint and shall be back to the hospital tomorrow to see if they can diagnose the problem. Smart money is on the cruciate, but I’m hoping for just the medial ligaments.
