is that he has a partially torn MCL (medial collateral ligament) and possibly a tear in the meniscus (connective tissue between the bones of the knee). He is scheduled for an MRI on Tuesday and a follow-up with the sports medicine doc after that. He's not in too much pain, thankfully, and is faithfully icing his knee and keeping it elevated. We'll know from the MRI how bad the tear is and whether or not it will require surgery. He will certainly have to wear a brace for a while and he'll get fitted for that next week. I'm still glad we went skiing and he is, too, but I bet he won't be exploring lesser traveled trails through the woods again...but then again, this is Thomas, so I wouldn't bet on that!
