Default wonderful spring break so far

Ok, before I start this story, my left knee has been messed up since about the 8th grade. The cartiledge behind my kneecap is swollen and it hurts constantly, like someone prying behind my kneecap. I have meds to make the swelling go down, but they don't help much.

So anyway, me and a friend of mine were at this party Saturday night, and I had decided to bring some fireworks with me. We grabbed about half of them and walked back down to the road to shoot them off. After we finished those off, I went back to the car to get the rest. We were all kinda hyper, and I took off running towards the road (DOWNHILL on GRAVEL, see where this is going?). All of a sudden, my feet are out from under me and I'm airborn (first thought, ouch). I landed on my left knee first, then right knee hit the ground, then left elbow, right hand, and left cheek at the same time, then I slid about 10 feet down the driveway. So now my right knee, and left elbow are scraped up, and my left knee is totally wasted. It'* all scraped up, swollen, and I can barely bend it or put any weight on it. Haven't been to the doc or anything yet, but I'm trying to see if the swelling goes down or not. But so far spring break has been me limping all over the place. I can't even get in and out of my car.

I've had ice on it the whole time until about 30 minutes ago.

I was also looking for the copy of the pic Pat has that says "Hi my name is Chris" We can't help the bruising/cuts... so we'll try and get you laughing.
