My leg was somewhat better this morning. I went to the track and ran laps - before my doctor's appointment. The X-ray of my leg was negative. The doctor diagnosed the problem as a contusion (bruise). The pressure built up at the point of the impact (where the log hit my leg) forced the blood into my lower leg and foot. He did not see any danger of a blood clot. So, the swelling in my leg will take time to go away. Heat treatments will help. I was relieved that nothing was broken and there was no danger of clots in my blood stream. This evening, I worked out at Iron Works.
