Turns out Brooke's doctor did evaluate her and decided her growth plate has stopped growing, so she is old enough for traditional ACL surgery (see prior post and the comments on an older post as well). I'm relieved to hear it.

I hope everybody had a fun, relaxing Fourth of July. Just a few less-famous lines from the Declaration of Independence:

...all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

Hey, that's some choice TJ quoting. A refreshing change from the usual "All men" line :-)

Valuable information. I was not aware there was an age factor for ACL surgery.

Best of luck to Brooke!
