And she is doing great.  She had an ortho appointment today and he now has her putting weight on her leg,  He said she could put 40-50 pounds on it whcih is about half her weight so she can actually start walking on it regulary.  Only problem is that her left leg (the one with the surgery) is now about an inch shorter than the other so she is going to have to get inserts for her shoes.  Right now she is going to be using her walker but she can walk her dog and even go across the street to the restaurant which made a certain someone over there happy LOL.  She will also be continueing with the aquatherapy and she even talked to the doctor about my problems with RA.  He said he'd be willing to take me on as a patient when I get there and that from what she has told him he thinks I would benifit from aquatherapy myself.  He is a big proponnent of aquatherapy, which is why he was so upset with Shannon getting PT in the beginning.  But she is doing very well now and she is even going to be going for her driving permit soon and then to get her license...then when she is better she will be making her way up here...
