Yesterday was the first time she was capable of sitting 'Upright' in the passenger seat.She was elated to be capable of doing so,for as it was she had to stretch out in the rear seat laying down.

She is progressing slowly/but surely.The Doctors are still uncertain if she will have (Full) mobility of her Knee/Kneecap. However she did bend it up to 90% yesterday which is optimistic.

Hopefully with-in the next couple of months,combined with her Out-Patient Rehab. She can gingerly/gradually have her 'Cumbersome' Knee brace taken off.

X-rays show that her knee is healing properly, which is also good news. However her tendons/muscles around it are still rather weak. But all in all,she continues to improve.

Which is testament to her tenacity on getting better. She knows now how difficult it is,for one to go from being 'Wide-Open' all the time,then being forced to practically come to a complete halt.

Thank you all for your prayers and kind thoughts. As always they have helped...

Cliff
