As you may have read, here & here, I busted my knee, well & truly, last Thursday morning, when I fell awkwardly while shoveling snow. There was an almighty crack. Left knee was at a funny angle and there were things pointing out from it. I couldn’t get up. Finally hobbled into the house. Knee was in bad shape. Managed to pull on a knee brace onto it and that made a big difference. I could at least now drag the leg along.

Made it to the ER at ‘Frisbie Memorial Hospital’ in Rochester (NH) by noon — about 90-minutes after I had done the damage. I was in some pain, but I was doing OK. I hadn’t taken any pain medication and declined the first batch that was offered to I.

Once I was horizontal on the ER bed most of the pain, if not all of it, went away. I could just lie there with no pain to talk about. That is par for the course for I. {Sorry!}

They did a X-ray and a contrast CT Scan (which required the insertion of 2 IVs, the 1st apparently not large enough for the contrast dye they wanted to pump into I).

They diagnosed that I had completely ruptured (i.e., seperated) my Quadriceps Tendon.

I needed surgery, to reattach it, within 10-days. (Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow.)

They gave me some acetaminophen (Tylenol) about 2-hours into my stay and a shot of morphine before I left.


But, as I was being discharged the female Physician Assistant (Certified) (PA-C), from Maine, who had taken care of me throughout my 4.25 hour stay came to check up on me.

After going through all the formalities, she said: “So, what is your secret? Mind-over-matter? This is fairly serious injury and you coped with it like it was not too bad“.

BINGO!

I told her about my ‘Brain Meditation’.

If you look at the top picture I had spelled all of that out, as a ‘Reward’, 3-years earlier.

So, here was proof.

Ability to: module pain, coping with lifestyle change and continued serenity.

‘Brain Meditation’, as I spell it out here, has served me well over the first 6-days. I am basically pain-free. Just taking 2 Aleves a day — and that is mainly as a precaution.

The Physician Assistant’s was going to check out my book. As she said, it certainly seemed to be working.
