GREAT FRIDAY

Friday, May 03, 2013

Today the PT came. I asked him to be with me while I saw if I could get up off of my divan. I could. emoticon

Then I asked him to be with me while I saw if I could get up off of a low bath room stool I have. I don't use it but some places you go do have low ones. I strained my knee trying to get up. emoticon

Then we went outside and walked w/o the walker and then inside to do the exercises. emoticon

Then it was almost time to go celebrate a friends anniversary with them (68 years of wedded bless and........) They knew how to make it through the ups and downs. He said he learned early on to say "Yes, honey".

I arrived home worn out so took a long nap. If I don't sleep early tonight it is because I already slept emoticon

My computer still is acting up. Sometimes it won't delete or do other things it's supposed to do. If it doesn't start behaving I am going to have to emoticon
it.

Have a good Evening all.

Irene emoticon

    PT is ups and downs...no pun intended, but the ups will win.

Great job and emoticon to the happy couple!

    It sounds like you had a good day. It is good to have the PT watch and be there when you try different activities. How much longer do you think that you will have PT? My right (bad? good?) knee is now acting up with it's osteoarthritis. I had been on Glucosamine and Chondroitin for knee pain for maybe 15 years before I broke my left knee. Since then I have not taken any but I was not active or using either knee for awhile. Anyway, now I'm going back on it because the pain in my unoperated knee makes it harder to walk. It will take a bit for the medicine to kick in but then I'll be fine. Have a good Sunday.

    Good to hear your getting out and about. That "yes, honey" technique has stood us both well for the past 26 years. All the best to you and to the anniversary couple.
