Hi to all. Hope everyone is doing better than just surviving. I spent all day at the doctors office today. Problem is that it wasn't for me this time.
I have a 15 year old daughter who is a sports nut. She plays basketball, volleyball, she is also a softball pitcher and just made varsity track. She is a freshman who just got put on an a hurdle relay team with all seniors. She lives and breathes sports and has worked hard to get where she is. She even picks practice over boys. Sometimes she has 3 practices a day plus school and she is in confirmation. We are so proud of her, she certainly doesn't get her ability from her fibro mom. Sometimes I can't even make it to her games because of the pain . We Went to have her knee looked at today. She has had some pain and swelling in her knee for a few weeks. Her coach thought maybe she had over done her practicing and recommended we take her to a Sports Medicine Doctor. He figured she may have to do a little physical therapy. We were not expecting to be told thay wanted an mri right away( X-rays showed nothing). Doctor said she may need surgery and rehab. If she does, that would mean at least 8 weeks of no sports at the least. She would lose her Varsity track postion and possible her #1 pitching postion for all summer. I wish he wouldn't have told her that. As soon as he walked out the door she broke down crying. It took me along time to calm her down. She is going to have a long weekend. We can't get the results until late Monday. I know it is not the end of the world , but it is still hard to see your child hurting. I wish I could take away her pain. It will break her heart if she can't continue with her sports career.
I know this was off topic but I just needed to vent. I don't want her to know how worried I am. I am so grateful that I have this forum.
