Valhalla Posted July 5, 2007 Report Share Posted July 5, 2007 Well, I spent my 4th of July in the emergency room. We were deworming sheep yesterday afternoon and one of the dogs we've had in for training about a week (who, BTW, has NOT been keen) was out with another one of our dogs to see if she'd turn on. Well, that plan worked and she suddenly decided to turn on. After a minute or so of chasing, she was hot on the trail of one of the khatadin's and low and behold... that friggin' ewe decided my knee was the best place to head for. She hit me on the outsude of my knee, at a full run. I remember hearing a loud pop and then having David help me lie down while I was screaming in agony. The emergency room doc diagnosed a tear or partial tear of my medial collateral ligament, so I am in this ridiculous brace thing from my thigh to my ankle. I have yet to hear back from the Ortho's office regarding an appointment, but I am sure I'll need an MRI to accurately diagnose the problem. Keep your fingers crossed that it is not something that will require surgery. I am NOT a good patient and can not be still fro very long. I am terribly bored and hate that i can not go to the barn and take care of all the dogs (David is working two jobs now... his and mine). And yes, be careful when working young dogs! It can be dangerous! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
