Elizabeth Update

Well, The MRI came back clean so she will not need surgery. This is a very good thing. However, it also leaves us with many questions. No one is sure why her knee is hurting. It has been suggested that she may have bruised the bone, or compressed the cartilage when she wore the heels. So for now she will continue to take her pain meds when needed. She has been ordered off the crutches and she is only suppose to wear the brace when she will be up on her feet for a long time and she feels she needs it. Monday she goes to see a physical therapist who will give her some exercises to do over the course of this next month. On the 25th of Aug she will go back to the orthopedic for a re-check and see where she is at that point. The goal for the month is to strengthen her leg and knee.

Not much else to report so I will close for now.
In Christ,
