My Mum and sport

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

A while ago I wrote, that I will sponsor a gym membership for my mum. She is 69 and she NEEDS to be fit. She is a lovely lady, very clever, very interested in things, likes to travel, and even when she worked as a nurse, she was always a bit unfit. She did some nordic walking in the past, but when it comes to steps - she is lost. We do not why but I decided that she should give the gym a go ...

I took her with me and she did some aqua classes and was pretty happy. Until 4 weeks ago. Her knee started to hurt.

Well, 1 week ago she had an MRI scan and there is a lot in her knee. Thorn meniscus, some strange cyst, inflammation. Her surgery will be on the 20th of february.

Today I will prepare the crutch for her to practice.

Poor mum.

    That's too bad. It's wonderful that you have been able to help her get motivated and it sounds like she was making great progress. I hope all goes well with her surgery and she is able to get right back at it.

    Knees are hard to get around... Hope the surgery works and gives her mobility!
