An Update on Moose's Leg

Resurrexit Sicut Dixit! Alleluia!

I hope you all had a blessed Easter Sunday, and will be able to thoroughly celebrate the Fifty Days of Easter. I know I have a hard time maintaining the Alleluia spirit, especially as crosses come into our lives; but at least trying to helps to keep the eternal perspective. At least it does for me. :)

I always enjoy how whenever life is mostly figured out, another wrench is chucked into the system, mucking up the gears. Poor Moose is having a hard time recovering from his leg break, so his surgeon agreed with our thoughts about physical therapy. We met with the PT last week. I'm still waiting for her written evaluation report but she gave us homework exercises before we even left her office, so I'm guessing it's not just a "mind over matter" thing that we were all hoping for. Moose's leg is incredibly weak, despite walking (limping) on it and his gait is all messed up.

We can add physical therapy now into our weekly lives, including the homework exercises (on top of the OT for handwriting exercises) and make sure that we are staying on top of those, schoolwork, housework, as well as time for leisure. Not to mention all the other appointments and other things we have going on.

Just another string in a line of things Moose has to deal with since breaking his leg. He still has regular x-rays, random pain in the leg (moreso now that we've been doing the PT exercises), and the like.

He's already declared that he will NOT be sledding anytime soon, if ever. I can't say I blame him.

St. Luke, please intercede for Moose that his leg strengthens up well and his gait returns to normal.
