First day of PT and some kayak pics

Monday, October 24, 2011

Had my first physical therapy today, and survived! It felt so good to get those big bulky bandages off and have some fresh air on my leg. They put me through some stretching and strengthening exercises to do twice a day, iced it, re-wrapped it, and sent me on my way. She thinks I will be able to do the bike ride next week if I ride the tandem and put the flat pedals back on. The rides are short and flat, so not much pressure on the knee. I can drive as long as it isn't a stick shift, do stairs (but not carrying anything), and shower as long as the stitches don't get wet. I go back Wed for another hour of work with weights. Thursday I will see the doc again and make sure things are going well.

Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes, they are so welcome!

Last week we did some kayaking to see the beautiful fall colors from the lake.

I'll see the doctor Thursday and hopefully can get back in the kayak soon, too.

    You are a real inspiration. I just love the new pictures. The wonders of nature are so unbelievable. Take your time getting back in the grove.

    Wow - take it easy and hope you recover soon. I just graduated to cane today as long as I don't over do it.

    I'm being careful. The trip was on Tuesday before surgery on Friday. No worries.
