Local resident injures knee
Last week Ann Dillard fell and injured her right knee. She went to the Emergency Room to be checked out and she had not broken anything.
She saw her doctor and he put a brace on the knee and she said that it's feeling better. He told her she had a lot of arthritis in the knee as well. Then she fell again the next day, but did not hurt herself this time. She started physical therapy and will be going on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Let's all remember Ann in our prayers and hope that she will recover real soon.
