My first biking accident

did not occur when I was actually on my bike. As I was pulling out the bike rack on the front of the bus, the rack somehow came loose and slammed down on my knee. I did manage to bike home after getting off the bus, but my knee is now fabulously swolen. I was hoping it would only be black and blue.

aw, lorraine... you should put ice on it. did you ice it? for knee problems (they follow me around via family and friends, although i've never had any) this is what you do:
Rest
Ice, ice, ice
Compression (eg an Ace bandage)
Elevate (at or above level of heart)
