Was at my son's Tball practice tonight. He threw the ball & it was rolling towards me.
I move right foot to stop ball. Rt foot slips on ground. Left foot remains in place. I go down HARD!! on arse, back, neck. Left foot basically stays in place. Knee goes 'sproing'.
I've had it iced & elavated for about 3hrs now, & hope I can move in the morning.
eta: 'cause I don't know left from right.
A buddy of mine (also 42 y/o at the time, btw) tried to execute some fancy skateboard maneuver on his kids halfpipe setup.
Surgery, lots of screws and pins accompanied by a long recovery/rehabilitaion time.
So I guess that it could be worse.
