Frustrated

Well, it's been one week since the accident & Riley is healing much slower than I had hoped. She has started using the injured leg again, but just a little... mainly for balance. I read online that for every day the limb goes unused it takes 3x as long to rebuild the muscles. So, we are currently looking at about 3 weeks rehab (if there is nothing else wrong with the leg). She is going in for a follow up appointment this week and I am petrified at the thought of dealing with ligament damage. The surgery for a torn ACL is around $3,500 and that's not including therapy. *sigh*

We are currently searching for a pool we can use to help strengthen her leg.
If you (or someone you know) has a pool we can use in the CA Bay Area please let me know!
