Elyse continues to improve after her June 26 accident. She’s still in the 6-12 week healing phase for her back, but everything is looking good. The broken bone in her leg is healing nicely per the latest X-ray taken last week. The partial ligament tears in her knee also seem to be doing fine. The doctor now thinks there is only about a 10% chance of needing knee surgery; additional follow up to come after further physical therapy.
Elyse was able to upgrade from her walker to a cane this week as her mobility has increased! She can now fully bear weight on her left leg and bend it while walking in the brace. There’s still a long way to go rebuilding her strength and energy, but the steady progress is encouraging.
