Bratcat had her step 1 surgery at the beginning of the summer after school ended. She was up and about within the month but still weak and tired. She would have had a hard time getting back into the school routine at that time. Around 10 weeks she really began to feel more like her old self again. She goes for her reconnect surgery in 16 days. She plans to return to school after Thanksgiving.
Can you wait until school is out in the spring?
