We spent a few days in the hospital and had an uncomplicated recovery, thankfully. The surgeon who is a pediatric spinal specialist discussed a few things with us before he turned the general discharge instructions over to the nurse. The nurse needed to provide us with J's physical limitations during her recovery. Essentially, J was encouraged to use her arm when she felt she was ready and as she read over the other instructions she said, "Oh, and if she has any siblings no wrestling." She paused and continued, "But you have two girls so you don't need to worry about them wrestling." My husband and I looked at each other like...what?!?! Ummm...I don't know about other girls, but our girls wrestle, tackle and rough house on a daily basis.
Now whenever my girls decide to wrestle, I have to chuckle. Ahhh..memories!
Someone is going to get hurt!
