Last night while I was writing my blog post, the girls were in a swim meet across town. The Mister got the text that Moo had dislocated her knee. For several minutes that seemed like hours, that’s all we knew. Then we got additional information and now I have all the information because it’s been twenty-four hours.
Moo’s knee popped out while backstroking 100 and she still finished her race and another swimmer told Sassy, “Hey, your sister’s fucked up.” Sassy abandoned her snack, slipped and fell on the deck, then ran to the end of the pool where she pulled Moo out. Then she walked her to the locker room, examined her knee, and popped it back in place, because as a lifeguard, she has been trained. *heart heart* And that’s her Moo. *gush gush* So Moo iced and elevated and came home on crutches. When The Mister collected them, one of the coaches said Moo had hobbled over and asked, “How’d I do, Coach? What was my time?”
And we are so proud. Just ridiculously proud. *grins*
No school today. I called Moo’s doctor and if you can imagine, she is out til Monday. Nurse recommended urgent care, so I made a save-a-spot appointment for the afternoon.
At urgent care, they x-rayed Moo and determined she will take a week off from athletics and then she may ease herself back in according to her own comfort level. She’s going to take her anti-inflammatory and spend time with her leg elevated a la icy boo-boo compress.
Moo never could sneak up on anyone, she’s light as a feather with a heavy heel, but now? Click-Clack-Hop, Click-Clack-Hop, you can hear her from anywhere in the house. Something Crippled This Way Comes.
What a tough cookie, what a relief!
Grateful & Proud
