Coach is Back in the Game!

Day after surgery
HAHA, I seriously have received more comments saying, "so now are we to expect a comeback from your mom at the 2014 US Speedskating Olympic Trials?!" than any other in response to her knee-replacement surgery 2 weeks ago. Y'all are very funny... :)

For those of you who've been keeping up with her surgery/recovery and also praying for her, our whole family cannot thank you enough. It has not been an easy route to getting a new knee. Her surgery went perfect thanks to Dr. Stulberg at Northwestern, but once the anesthesia wore off and pain set in, she was in complete misery for a couple days. But as you all know, she is one tough chic and on Easter Sunday, she was able to come home and join us for dinner with the whole family.

Swelling continues to go down (above), today's pic (right)
Since then, a therapist comes over once a day to keep my mom in check with tough therapy and she is walking around quite a bit and going to the gym to use the bike (don't worry, it's extremely easy). Icing faithfully has brought her swelling down significantly and it's amazing to see her walk straight now (see videos below!)...the Lord truly has blessed her. And it continually amazes me how technology has advanced to where people can have a new body parts, bringing them close to normalcy again or better. God is good.

"For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations." 

              ~Psalm 100:5

             



It's been God, your support/prayers, & family, that have gotten her through...thank you all!

God Bless,
