Well, the title pretty much says it all. I was planning to get some stuff done around the brewery today but instead, the first thing I did today was fall down the stairs and tear a few ligaments in my knee, so, nothing doing around the brewery. Instead I got to spend 4 absolutely fabulous hours in the ER (for which I am sure I will get billed through the nose) and the rest of the day hobbling around on crutches and lying uncomfortably in bed.

Just needed to vent a little, someone brew something up extra for me.

Sorry for your fall man. I'm not brewing today, but I'll go pour a beer and drink one for you.

So sorry to hear about your knee. What type of ligament damage - from experience I know they can be serious. If it is an ACL tear that needs reconstruction, the rehab is long and tedious and brewing will not be in your near future - you will definitely need a some nearby homebrewers to assist.

Luckily it is my MCL, so not as serious as an ACL. As of now they don't think I will need surgery, gotta meet with the orthopedist next week to know for sure.

Thanks for all the well wishes gang, this is what I love about this board.

Very sorry to hear about your knee. I know how those feel, if I was closer I'd bring you a few brews.
