I have to apologize for the delay of this week's edition of Think Modern Thursday...
I worked open to close on Wednesday, which is when I would normally write this segment, so that I can hit the "post" button just a few minutes after midnight, so that it's ready as soon as it's actually Thursday.
Well, this past Wednesday, I did... something to my left knee. Now, I've had knee problems since playing tennis in high school. But whatever I did Wednesday night, which was no different from any other work day, stressed my knee out.
By the time we were done picking up a friend at the mall, my knee did not want to support my weight. I spent the evening keeping my knee elevated and resting. It didn't hurt, just ached dully.
When I woke up Thursday, the whole middle of my leg encompassing the knee and about four inches above and below it, were freakily numb. I persevered, though, put on my knee brace and went to work.
My knee buckled every fifteen to twenty minutes as I worked. I kid you not. I finally got worried enough that I left work early, and headed to Dean Urgent Care to have someone take a look-see.
One exam and three x-rays later, I still don't know anything. The PA who examined me noted the buckling, could actually feel something popping when she maneuvered my leg around. However, she said the x-rays looked fine. Yet, she gave me a referral for orthopedics, and I have an appointment on Tuesday morning to see what is actually up.
So anyway, that's why Think Modern Thursday #7 is late. I know what I want to post, but I think I'll leave it until next week. That way I have a little wiggle room before post #100 comes up.
Meanwhile, I'm working another open to close today. (My poor knee!) A fellow employee had a tooth pulled, so isn't really able to effectively communicate, which is kind of a necessity in the retail world. Thank goodness, I thought ahead and wore my brace today, because I'm feeling the strain. Hopefully this weekend will be a little more restful.
So, again... I'm sorry about missing this week's Think Modern Thursday. I'll be back on the horse next week!
