A really great day all around today here in Baltimore!
We started at the physical therapist's office for her initial evaluation. All the news was good: her knee flexion was nearly 80 degrees without any excess effort, and her muscle strength wowed all the therapists- probably thanks to all of her personal training sessions these past few months.
Afterwards, we enjoyed a nice lunch out in the patio next to the hospital cafeteria. The weather in Baltimore has been amazing- sunny and cool, low humidity.
Next, she had her first post-op visit with Dr Herzenberg. The Xrays showed that she her leg is now nearly 10mm longer, which means that the lengthening is nearly halfway complete already! We should be all finished by the time we go back to see him next week.
Here is the comparison (the one on the right was taken during the operation last week)
Thank you all for putting comments up on the blog. She is really missing home and loves to hear from you!
Here is a pic from Orlando, where Mitchell and Sam continue to tear it up on the vacation of a lifetime. Can you identify the Jedi below?
