Thanks guys....the squirt has some goofy knees. Maybe dislocated is the wrong term...but it essentially falls apart if she lands wrong...the knee cap slides to one side and the whole knee just pops a part...I have had to personally "snap' her knee cap back in place a couple of times.....it is not a pretty picture (pun intended ) It looks and sounds extremely painful...been to numerous specialists an no real answers yet.
She thinks she will miss this weekend and be back next...? These are tough little squirts I tell you.
Just a quick update.....we are back from the Knee God Specialist (KGS for short ) ..... Nothing torn. I was certain it was an PCL or MCL tear, but they are just stretched and sore.
Brace is being developed for gymnastics and physical therapy starts on Tuesday. She asked KGS if she could compete on Sunday.......I beat him to the answer
Funny in that he said her knee cap was larger than the slot it rides in and expects her to grow somewhat to have everything come into balance...considering she is 4 foot nothin' anything that suggest additional height is a welcome thing for her....
January competition looks feasible though and she is relieved and excited.
