I love this photo...they are so alike in their analytical thinking. She showed him a game last week called "Move the Box" and he's been playing ever since. They "help" each other out on the levels.
Here they are waiting for the doctor to come in and talk MRI and results etc.
Basically she has a tear in her meniscus, a complete ACL tear, bruising on the tibia and femur from where they bones slid and hit each other. Yes, OUCH!
She's headed for surgery, in the next couple of weeks. She has some pre-surgery therapy he'd like her to do to get her range of motion back before surgery. She will get a completely new ACL made just for her...lucky girl.
Her surgery will be before our Scotland trip and she will have several weeks of therapy behind her before we leave. She will be wearing a brace, but since she is going to be with my Dad, myself and my nephew, she won't be having to push it to keep up with at least Dad and I. The doctor is okay with her going, though he has warned her it will be hard. I am sure that the therapist will give her some exercises to keep up with as well.
Will you pray that her range of motion comes quickly? She is eager to get back to work too, and the sooner she has the surgery the sooner that can happen as well.
She has been cheerful in all of this and I am thankful for her good spirits. It's not easy to not be able to ride her horse or do archery, and work with animals, or drive, or earn money for her trip and save for a car.....I'm proud of her!
