I went to physical therapy today. I do have the same physical therapist that I had last time, Robert. It hurt but it was a good hurt. I had my health aid with me and I wanted to go soak in the pool after physical therapy. The aid said it was not on the schedule and she wouldn't do it. She had to take me back home, get me up the stairs, which is a lot easier than getting down, and showered.
Here I thought that since I was out and at the Hospital for Special Care anyway I could go and at least soak in the therapy. The health aid has thrown a wrench in my plans. All the other aids I have had have done what I wanted but not her. She goes specifically by the schedule. I am going to have to talk to Robert and see if he will add that to the schedule since she is hell bent on the schedule. It would have been a lot easier to shower at the Hospital too, since you walk into the showers and don't have to literally climb into the tub to take a shower. I am going to do something, either change the schedule or change the aid.
Most of what we did today were stretches and he put the ultra sound machine on my neck and shoulder. Ohhhh that felt so good but when he massaged it, it hurt a little but a good hurt. I have to go back on Friday. Robert gave me exercises and stretches to do everyday.
