In September of last year Christopher injured his knee playing basketball. He took some time off from basketball to rest his knee and see if it would heal. He finally saw an orthopedic doctor in November and found out that he had torn his ACL and would need surgery. So in January he had surgery and began physical therapy. From day one he has been ahead of schedule in his recovery because he worked hard not only in PT, but also at home doing the exercises. So now after six months of determination and hard work, he has finally been cleared to play basketball again! And there is so much rejoicing!
I can’t tell you how happy I am for him. It has been 9 months since he last played basketball. And as I shared with you guys in November, that’s a big deal. Basketball has been such a huge part of his life for so long and I’m so glad that he’s able to play it again!
I really am amazed at his attitude throughout all of this. If someone told me that I had to give up one of my favorite things for 9 months, I know I wouldn’t have handled it with as much grace as he has. He hasn’t complained once about it. He was sad when he first found out that he would need surgery and how long the recovery would be, but instead of whining about it (as I surely would’ve done), he set his mind to getting back on the court as quickly as possible. So he focused all of his energy on recovery. It could have easily taken as long as a year for him to recover his strength and mobility in that knee. It took 6 months. Because he’s a beast and was so determined. He’s the bomb dot com. 😀
