Yes, she's thrilled. She actually started playing again in July, but she was very hesitant. I'd say she was at 70%. I haven't seen her play since (although they've had a few games here and there), and I just can't believe how much she's improved! I would say she's at 85% now. She's starting to look like her old self. <sniff, sniff>

You really look at things differently after going through something like this. The things you took for granted...simple steps...going to the bathroom on your own (I had to help her for about a week) just realize what a blessing it is to be able to do those things.

Because she's been such a good player (one of the top in the state...excuse my bragging ), it was very hard for all of us. Many tears were shed from December, when she injured it, until February, when she had the surgery. Cryin's over now!

Oh, and the team won their second game 6-0. Tomorrow, they face the team they beat last year. Should be a good game.
