Well, it's official. Zoe's torn her MCL. According to Dr. Z, it's a grade two tear, but her meniscus is probably OK, and she definitely didn't do anything to her ACL, so that's good. We'll cancel the MRI we had scheduled for next week with those clowns over at that other hospital, and see if we can't get Zoe off her crutches and down to just wearing her new brace, which is a Mad Max sort of affair with 8 straps, 4 hinges, and some sort of jelly filling.
Her season's over, but we knew that much back almost two weeks ago when it happened.
The other good news: it looks like there won't be any surgery involved, so we dodged all the big bullets. A little rehab, a little physical therapy, maybe some new exercises... she'll be right as rain before next season.
