Gift cards are how I keep track of how much I spend on books a month. If I added $20 to my gift card, once that balance is gone, I am done buying books for the month.

(That picture above was my answer to everyone’s homecoming pics. 😀 I was like look at his luscious locks! He was going with a friend and her grandparent was in the hospital. He stayed home and gamed.)
A week ago or so, I told you how Jordan hurt his knee in the first soccer game of the season. It wasn’t getting better so I sent him to the doctor for x-rays. They saw something that made them concerned so they made an appointment for an MRI.
He had the MRI Wednesday evening and I got the call with the results Friday while I was working. He has a lateral meniscus tear. I came home and looked it up and am sitting here saying why don’t they use the term “tear in the cartilage” anymore? If you say that I know exactly what kind of pain he is in because I tore the cartilage in my knee as a teen too. Mine was a small tear and I was able to heal without surgery, though that knee still bothers me now as an adult when it gets cold. I’m assuming Jordan’s is worse than mine because they are sending him straight to the orthopedic surgeon.
I shared this video before. But this was the only game he got to play this season. 🙁 He was a few minutes late for the game so he went in second half. He came down on his knee as he dove early in the game, but didn’t stop at all. He just kept going, diving and rolling, blocking, jumping, and after the game he had showed me his left. It was bruised half way down past the knee and halfway up above the knee. I don’t know if it was adrenaline or what, but he kept playing. He hasn’t complained that much since. Every once in awhile when it gets really sore he’ll kind of say a little, but he just keeps keeping on.
I cannot wait for the orthopedic surgeon to take a look at it and get us going on fixing him so he isn’t in pain. I’m hoping he is back up and moving well by the second session of winter soccer. That’s his favorite.
He has been off work for 3 weeks now and has been taking the elevator at school. It’s just kind of thrown everything he wants to do off.
Keep him in your thoughts and prayers that he starts to feel better!
Have a wonderful day!
