wisdom teeth

Only one word for this topic....OVERRATED.....I was complained about the teeth coming in but if I knew the pain I would have getting them out I would not mind chewing on my cheek every once in awhile. On top of the I get this lovely cold. I am on antibiotics I am not suppose to get sick. Anyways I get sick and feel like crap. Today is hte first day I have made it to school the WHOLE day and I have this lovely yellow bruise on the side of my face. Totally attractive might I add. Then I cough cough and cough. Really do I have this bad of luck???

So I have finally decided to write about something that is seriously bothering me. For those who know me they know that I went o Nebraska to play college soccer. Well my first year ended out marvelous. Holding 2 school records, MVP, and being a national ranked player my first year. Things were going perfect for me until I came home for spring break and decided to play indoor soccer. There were 3 minutes left in the game and I tried to school this boy. Well in return it was me that suffered a huge blow. I tore my ACL, that is the ligament on the inside of your knee that pretty much is the most important ligament and keeps your knee from giving out. Well I ended up having surgery in April for it so that I could play during the next soccer season. This is a lovely picture how that ended up.
Well I came back to play with this lovely little brace that I called bumble bee. hahah transformers just came out. Here is the lovely picture of that. I had to keep spraying it with teflon spray because it was squeaking. hahah

So I played that year and it was going pretty good. Did not do as good as I did my first year but I was fine with it because I really was not suppose to be playing as soon as I did. So I went throughout the season without major knee problems. I then had to figure out where I was going to go next. I was talking with several different coaches but in February I went down to Canyon, Texas to try out for West Texas A&M. That place was not very pretty hahah...But while trying out I felt that same pop. I was freaking out and not very happy. I thought that I tore my acl again. My knee swelled up.

I was so upset because I came back home and got an MRI and the worst thing that could of happened showed up on the results. The said that I had re-torn my acl. I went all summer long without going to the doctors because I wanted to go to Brasil so I was not worried much about going to the doctor real soon. Well I have been sitting out of everything because without an ACL you cannot do much. I finally went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and he told me something that lifted my spirits. He does not believe that I tore it. He told me that everything on the MRI says i should have torn it but he feels stability and can see a few striations of my acl on the MRI. So he told me to exercise and come back in a month. This is such great news because I am dying to play again. If everything goes well I think I am going to get out of this state again and go play. It is the one thing that makes me happy and I am not too bad at it. I am working on going to play with one of my friends from Brasil who is still playing at my old school. I am still confused and a little upset about this knee issue because I have sat out of a lot of things because I believed it was torn, but I guess God has his ways of teaching us all. I cannot wait to play again.
