Good News!

Daughter and I went to see a pediatric sports medicine orthopaedic surgeon today (say that one 10 times fast!). Good news!! He disagreed with the ER doctor. He believes daughter will not have to give up gymnastics. The plan is surgery Tuesday for a pin in the bone, no cast, and therapy begins within 3 to 4 days after surgery. She can begin conditioning at the gym under the care of a sports therapist within 2 weeks, and may be back to full training within 6 to 8 weeks! Sounds great, but I'm getting a second (third?) opinion. Better safe than sorry.

Maybe now I can get my head back into writing/plotting my new novel. I haven't put down a single new word on the page. No inspiration. None at all. Just the desire for a good, long nap.

Yes, getting that second (third) opinion is probably a wise thing to do. I hope the best and that your daughter's break heals strongly.

Thank you both. My biggest worry right now is the surgeon is available for scheduling, but there are no operating rooms available. We're on a waiting list for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of NEXT week. It's already been a week. I'm afraid her arm is going to start to heal and set incorrectly. I'm hoping the doctor we see Saturday can get her in sooner. It's crazy!
