So.  You’ve just turned 39 years old.  Your wife has just turned 38.  It’s her birthday and she wants to go to a trampoline park.  WHAT COULD GO WRONG?  Nothing…  nothing that is, until you’re about to leave and decide, “hey, one more time for the camera so the kids can see how much fun this was.”

Triple jump, bounce off the wall for the fourth jump, twist around and triple jump back to the starting point?  SO MUCH FUN…  the first few times I did it.

But note how my right leg is more extended than the left?  That apparently was significant.  Because when I landed, even though it was not an awkward landing, my right knee gave out.

Patellar tendon completely came off the patella (knee cap), leaving me with something that only vaguely resembles a knee.

MRI tomorrow, surgery Tuesday, 6-8 weeks of crutches and several months of rehab.  Yuck.

In the meantime, stay tuned for some guest posts Smile
