Last night I received my final confirmation email for the retreat and I am now all set and on-course...for the course!!
I am scheduled for the MRI of my knee next Thursday. The following Thursday is my follow-up visit to get the results. Obviously, we won't be doing anything until I return from the retreat, but at least this way I will know specifically what the damage is and what my true limitations are for sitting.
Since I can't wear the brace, I am now having to be much more aware and mindful of my steps, walking, and movement in general to ensure I don't step or twist the wrong way and injure my knee more.
Being mindful of walking, something we take for granted and do without thought, is an interesting experience and excellent practice for mindfulness!!
