Thank y'all.
She's doing great. We're 8 days post surgery, and outside of the swelling you wouldn't know it. I told my wife I'd be okay if her legs atrophied for a couple of months until she's healed. She almost immediately went back to trying to take a few steps. I'm anxious just about the whole time she's awake, but she's doing great.
Great news.  Hopefully this is all behind her and she has no memory of it.  At 11 months my son had spinal meningitis and my wife had him choppered to Vanderbilt in Nashville.  She has awful memories of the ordeal (this was before we met) of all the tests and tubes.  They saved him and he has no memories.  It’s why I always root a little for Vanderbilt.

I live vicariously through this thread.  Don't forget to post in a few years when she is tearing it up in school, softball, basketball, dance, cheer, violin, whatever she wants to do.

Let's be honest...how many of us here took this kind of course load at any point in our high school careers? 

Classes with H at the start are honors.  The two English classes are each one semester.

Very impressive. Should equate to a min of a college semester of classes. AP calculus was my only C in HS (very few B’s). I took it my senior year and was more focused on baseball and partying.

Please don’t let him grow up to be a taint radiologist/physicist like Rick 😂

I'm talking about in one year...not your whole high school career. 

We didn't even take seven classes per term, much less eight.  And one of those was usually athletics.

True that.  I had 6 classes per term my senior year.  All but one was honors.  And none were athletics because like the loser I am, I quit football because we sucked.

I took all honors that were available through my junior year...which amounts to one science, one math, and English.  Senior year I was accepted to all the schools I applied to and, being the slacker I am, chose about as easy a path as possible.  Still took Calculus and Physiology as honors, but dropped Honors English and skipped out on Honors Chem 2. 

The fifth year of Chinese is what still blows my mind on that schedule.  He insists it's by far his easiest class, but that seems crazy to me.

He's debating dropping the Comparative Government class for AP Physics C (calculus based).  He wants a career in science and likes physics better, but the Gov't teacher is probably their most prominent faculty member and a hell of a rec letter for elite schools.

Regardless of what HogNRock says, medical physics is a great way to use a Physics degree.

I’m not disparaging you, just giving you shit per usual. I have no doubt that’s a good career path  :thumbup:

He's actually leaning towards medicine, and very interested in radiology as a specialty.

I'm sure Rick would love to have an intern.

Low to decent odds he wouldn't sexually harass him.

My grandson’s team has been in Panama City Beach all week for a tournament. They won the championship in their bracket. In 2 games, my grandson went 5-5. And he is a pretty good second baseman also.

The room looked like the site of some horrible zoological experiment involving whiskey and gorillas....

He did great. It been fun watching them progress the last couple years. The competition at those Ripken events is stout and the boys played up to their competition all week. Our other team from our organization won their bracket as well. Great and fun week but glad to be home.

My youngest (12) at TCU basketball camp this morning with a couple of his teammates.  He's already almost 6 feet.

Refuses to wear anything but Razorback stuff.  Had an Aggie coach at a select camp early this summer giving him grief about it, he's really going to get it today (and he knows it).

👍 That’s awesome.

Teach him how to throw a fastball or swing a golf club. Big kid

and tie his right hand behind his back if you go that route

That is badass and that is a big kid for 14.   :thumbup:

Damn. Pittman is withering away to nothing.

I watched his opening press conference (for the 74th time) when he was hired and it is pretty incredible how much better he looks now.  Much healthier and slim than from just a few years back.

Also, I remember a lot of the pundits saying it was a decent hire but we didn't win the press conference.  I disagree, if that press conference didn't get you fired up you probably like the rah-rah, bells and whistles, flash in the pan soundbites.
