Last Saturday night, during a scene in "Neville's Island", I twisted my ankle and sprained my knee as I took this pose atop some rocks (yes, those are my bare legs and knees... you'll have to come see the play to see the rest!):
I somehow made it through the rest of that performance and took a megadose Vitamin I (aka Ibuprofen) before leaving the theatre for the drive home.
For the Sunday matinee, I loaded up on Tylenol 3s and Diclofenac, wrapped my knee, and altered my blocking/movements during the play somewhat. Somehow I made it through the show, thanks to the help from Ms Eclectic along with everyone in the cast and crew.
Fortunately we have had Monday - Wednesday off. I have rested a lot, worn a knee brace much of the time, and continued my healthy eating and lifestyle (including lots of protein, fat, and vegetables, and, of course, scotch therapy).
I don't know what has happened, but by now (Wednesday), my knee and ankle seem to be almost completely back to normal. Yea! "It all comes from a clean, healthy lifestyle."
