About a week ago my niece, M'Kenzie was doing her usual tumbling practice at her cheer gym when she fell doing a flip. My sister said that my niece immediately starting crying and screaming in pain while holding her left knee. She was able to get her to calm down, and so didn't feel the need to take her to a 24 hour clinic at that time of night. That coming weekend was mother's day weekend and she decided to wait until Monday morning to get her into a orthopedic doctor. After getting a MRI done the results were that she had a torn ligament along with a torn muscle that attaches to her knee cap. As of right now she is in a full leg brace along with walking on crutches which she has to wear for atleast 2-3 months. That means no swimming or playing outside for her this summer. Which in her mind is the worst thing in the world. Right now we are just praying that she heals much faster than they are anticipating and is able to get back on her feet. So I'm requesting lots of prayer from my fellow Aunts out there. Thank you so much!
