Sunny spring groomers = Knee rehab…right?

Hello yall.  I know, it has been a while since I wrote last (not including the Targhee Freeride Comps).  I have literally had to remove myself from damn near everything to do with skiing in order to grasp a bit of sanity during the down time of rehabbing my knee.  Today I finally took a few real runs!  I skied three runs on groomers at the Ghee and quit the second my leg felt tired, but it was GREAT!  My knee felt super stable, just sore and tired quickly.  I have my follow up appointment with the doc tomorrow after 3 weeks of therapy.  He will decide if he is going to repair my ACL, scope to check on it, and/or scope my meniscus, or nothing at all.  I really think my ACL is fine, my MCL still has a bit of soreness and pain and same with my meniscus, so I have already excepted the fact that he might scope my knee.  Other than that, I am working hard to get my knee back to full strength and prepping for next season, as well as a trip to South America in August!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
