B is doing well. She has finished part of her clinical work in order to officially graduate although she has already attended graduation. (She marched with her class nearly 3/4 of a mile from her college to the football stadium where graduation was held. She wore flat shoes and her limp was pronounced by the time she arrived, but arrive she did with a smile and level of pride that could only rival my own !)
These days, her ankle still swells upon standing and overuse, yet she doesn't let it stop her. Pain is intermittent but controlled for now. Her surgeon has continued to stress that the pain will likely worsen as arthritis becomes amplified.
In August, she is "officially" a college graduate. A long road but she's on the right path...and for that, I am happy ! :-)
