Your daughter is one of the most disciplined 22 year olds you have ever met. As she works on recapping from her sixth surgery, she is dedicated to the protocol that the doctor and the physical therapist have prescribed. In the case of her two different surgeries to her right ankle, as well as the shoulder surgery that she had last winter she was always recapping to get back to competition. First club and then college gymnastics have dominated much of her life, so she has been willing to work through a number of setbacks to be able to get back on the beam.
Her most recent surgery, however, was for her hip and it was not done until her college career was over. As a result, she likes to tell friends and family that she is not rehabbing this time to get back up on a four inch beam or to tumble on the springboard floor, she is simply rehabbing for life. With no real pressure to be ready for a first meet, she is not pushing herself beyond the prescribed stretches and exercises.
