A mist all the excitement of getting ready for 2 different trips that parts of the family are going on, now we are dealing with surgery.  See, back in January Amelia hurt her knee during PE.  We figured it was just a strained knee and some home P.T. and a little time it would get better.  She has been wearing my old knee brace to protect it,  was VERY careful when she went skiing, and doing everything she could to get it to heal.  No go, it just keeps hurting.  Time for the MRI.

Low and behold, she has a Complex tear of the Posterior Horn of the Medial Meniscus!  Who says dodge ball is for sissy's?  The doctor said he would do surgery this week!  Um, no, Amelia is going to Europe!  She has been saving for this trip for a year, planning, and waiting!  The doctor did a steroid injection into the knee joint to help with the pain and we are praying that will give her relief while she is gone.

On the 25th of March she will have arthroscopic knee surgery and hopefully that will take care of the problem and get rid of the pain.  So keep Amelia in your thoughts and prayers please, she will need them.  Thanks!
