Post op day 4

Sorry for not posting yesterday.  I spent the night at RMH while Matt stayed with Abby.  I basically ate dinner and went to bed!

Abby is doing great, medically.  She will get her brace today and we really don't think there's a medical reason to keep her.  Her recovery in that respect has been amazing!

Physically is a different story.  Walking is still very hard and her left foot turns out and drags a little.  She requires a lot of support when walking. We haven't even attempted transitions, bending down, or stairs.  

We should find out today if they want to get the ball rolling for rehab.  It takes a while to get insurance approval and secure a bed, so I'm not sure when it would happen.  Meanwhile, we will just keep plugging away!
