Nate Berkus and Ty Pennington to pay Oilers Taylor Hall a visit during MCL rehab

I know you are pretty clever (and obviously good looking) so you already know that I am a huge NFL fan. But I’m still a true Canadian at heart and that means that I eat poutine, know how to skate, hold doors open for strangers, choose Timmy’s over Starbucks, and – of course – watch hockey! Growing up in Edmonton, I was branded an Oilers fan since my days in the womb. Yes, I am highly aware that they are somewhat painful to cheer for but I’m not jumping off the bandwagon any time soon!

Breaking down Tony Romo’s back injury… Star Trek style!

We have officially hit the halfway point of the season! Coming off of a record low number of injuries in week 7, I must have jinxed the NFL because we saw a record high this week. Sorry, guys… Week 8 by the numbers:

Another week of hard work and physio later, Olivia’s knee now measures:

Flexion = 101°

Can I get a “what what” for this lady! Olivia is now just a little bit closer to that ultimate goal of full flexion. I have to give her credit for not complaining when we make an exercise a bit tougher. Bike, exercise, sweat, repeat!

Can I get a drum roll for Olivia’s most recent range of motion update?!

Flexion = 94°

Slow and steady wins the race! It’s pretty impressive to see these consistent improvements in Olivia’s range of motion. Her next visit with her orthopedic surgeon isn’t for another couple weeks but she’s already surpassed the goals that were set for her! Full range is 140° so we’ve “got a little bit longer” but this knee is going to be golden!

Follow up Friday #3!

This is a great picture. I say that because I didn’t screw up this week and measure Olivia’s knee backwards, hah! As you can see, her latest measurement is…

Flexion = 85°

Boomshakalaka! As these numbers improve, so does Olivia’s strength and, more importantly, function! She no longer needs to use her crutch to help her walk. She’s able to tackle tougher exercises. Guys, she will be doing dunks and shattering backboards in no time!
