AZ1 Leo Shults, AIMD 1983
We had a Super Bowl party with 22 friends and family,  10 upstairs and 12 down.

So, after watching the Denver D dismantle Carolina, I ran upstairs and into the living room and in front of my family and friends proceeded to jump and yelled "We WON!"...

As I came down from the jump, my left knee gave and I crumpled to the floor in extreme pain.

The ER Doc this morning determined that I have a Tibial plateau fracture.

I'm seeing an ortho surgeon in the morning...

But the important part is...

WE WON!!!!

Well, good news from the surgeon. Surgery will not be necessary, as long as I don't screw something up.

There getting me a knee brace and that should get me back to weight bearing in a couple of weeks.

4 to 6 and I should be good.
