Story Time - It was during the last dance of our wedding reception that the accident happened. The groom, doing the splits one more time went down, but didn’t get up. The remaining guests left as we iced his throbbing knee.
A sore knee did not stop us from leaving for our honeymoon at a Chicago resort. But we barely checked in when the pain became unbearable and we headed for the nearest emergency room. Trying to make the best of a bad situation I continued to take pictures of doctors and technicians as he was examined and x-rayed. Eventually we left with crutches, a knee immobilizer and a diagnosis of torn knee ligaments.
The real challenge came when it was time to drive home. He couldn’t drive and I didn’t know how to drive a stick. The best time to learn is NOT when the person who is teaching you is in a leg brace. So we jerked and stalled and tried to laugh and not cry.
