THEIR family holiday was cut short at the start of this year due to an unfortunate incident, but the Rossouw family is now going from strength to strength.
Young Milla Rossouw is recovering from a brain haemorrhage and fractured skull after a knee-boarder crashed into her head at high speed on the Murray River on the first day of their family holiday.
Now, Milla is back at Gray Street Primary School with four of her siblings and is on the long road to recovery.
Mum, Kim Rossouw is relieved with how well Milla is going.
“She went from not waking up, to not being able to walk, to this,” she said.
“She still has a long way to go, her writing and speech have been affected and she is doing occupational therapy, speech therapy and physiotherapy.”
Mrs Rossouw said Milla’s skull was starting to fuse back together as it had been left floating because of the swelling but most of the swelling had gone down now.
