Back to regular walks without pain

It was a Saturday morning, and Hershey, my seven-month-old lab/pit puppy, and I were at the dog park for her playtime. She was having a blast running and chasing other dogs and being chased.

I was chatting with some other owners, when Hershey and another dog slammed into my leg, causing my knee to bend in an awkward way. The people I was talking to immediately started asking: “Are you OK? Do you want to sit down?” and repeating their questions.

At first I wasn’t able to respond, but I did start mentally affirming that God was present and that I was OK. When I put weight on my foot, there was pain up and down my leg. I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to walk. The questions from others kept coming, along with, “It’s going to swell” and “You’re going to be hurting for a while.”
