leah and sam (in foster care with Maggie) went for a walk down by the river with Maggie today. when they turned to head back to the car, leah turned wrong and totally blew her knee. at 14 years old and 130 pounds..there is no way we are going to attempt leah's surgical repair. she is going to have to heal by strict nonweight bearing confinement rest for the next 6-8 weeks. and there is no way I am letting 5 foot 2 Maggie even attempt to try to care for and haul around leah at home...we would double our new cripple count pretty damn quick.
so while Maggie felt like I was ripping her right arm off..or at least tearing out her leah filled heart ..leah will come back to saints for the next few weeks to rest and heal and to get hauled in and out for pee breaks where there are more than just one short solo person to carry the very impressive 130 pound leah load around.
I will be looking for some volunteers to help me get leah out to pee around 7 pm each night. there is enough staff here during the day to buddy up but I while taller than Maggie will also need help for her final pee break at night.
anyone who is able and willing (and has a decently healthy back!) please post in the comments and we can work out a schedule to spread the evening help around.
so sorry Maggie and leah that life sucks big time right now.
