Everytime I watch her, I am amazed at how well she is doing. The 18 days she was at the hospital seemed like it was forever! She has only been home for 5 days, and I am telling you, we literally have to slow her down! The surgeon asked me to send him video (email) of her walking so he can adjust her therapy. He called me and was elated with her! He was considering using ankle weights on her if she would not use her leg, but he said "there is NO need for them, she is USING her leg and bearing weight on it better than he hoped for at this point and time"! He is also impressed at how she keeps her leg up under her, not out to the side when she is standing. He said what we are doing with her needs no adjusting. If she keeps going like she is, he said it might not take a full year for her to recovery!!!
Her she is motoring around "her green, green grass of home". I borrowed that from one of forum members posts! Thanks for looking....
Edited to add: I forgot to tell you she is on NO pain meds!
She looks truly wonderful. I'm so glad you posted video, it's so nice to see her walking around munching on grass. I know she is glad to be home as much as you are glad to have her home. I bet she will improve in leaps and bounds now with all the love she's getting.
