Update on Barbara's knee

Barbara spent two weeks in her cast but now it is off. On Tuesday we went to the specialist in Winnipeg and he took the cast off. Yea! She started physiotherapy on Wednesday. There is still some swelling so that is the first thing to deal with. She aslo has limited mobility. The therapist told her to stay off the knee for about 3 more weeks and then they will start on strengthening the muscles in her upper leg. The therapist said Barbara should be up and going by September. Barbara has several excersises to do a couple times a day and then ice every 2 hours.
She is pretty upset to be laid up for so long. All and any prayers are welcome.
Bless you all,


Here is my daughter just after her cast came off. She now has a splint and lots of physiotherapy. Posted by Picasa
