LoLo is on the injured list.
She has had a sore shoulder. For over a year.
Yeah, we rush to the Dr. all the time. not.
She had to have a very expensive and invasive MRI. (the kind where they shoot dye into the area, then do the scans)
She has a torn labrum.
The surgeon said she had 2 choices. Surgery (with 4-6 months of recovery) or physical therapy, with no guarantees of avoiding surgery later on.
We are going to try the physical therapy. It will be several days a week from now until mid August, then we go back to the surgeon for a reevaluation.
If she has surgery at that time, she can kiss her senior year of softball goodbye.
What the heck is she going to do if she does not play ball?
She has not had more than 4 weeks in a row off from softball since she was 10 years old!!
I know one thing she will have to do with this time off is…curb her eating. If you are not burning it off, you can’t eat like a lumberjack anymore sweetheart!
And a big congratulations to her as well; Thanks to her awesome stats this past softball (high school) season, she was just put on the *All State 2nd team* last week.
I will be praying that the physical therapy will work. No surgery for my baby please!!
