Well, the boss of the PT came out last week the day I had walked, walked and walked w/o the walker closing the deal on my new Toyota Venza.

He wanted to know how I felt. I said real tired as I had walked a lot. He asked if my knee hurt and I said yes so he said I needed to strengthen it more.

Soooooo I am back on PT, this time twice a week for a month. I want to get strong enough to have the other knee done as I know I will have trouble until I do.

Did some chores today, went out to eat and now sparking. Maybe I will take a emoticon Yesterday I was so tired as I walked a lot at church also but laid down and no nap came. Went to bed at 8:00 pm. got up at midnight, stayed up for a couple of hours and got up at 8:30 so got plenty of sleep in. The PT called and wanted to know if I was ready. So at 9:30 he came over.

He wants to come Monday and Wednesday but I am wondering if Monday and Thursday would be better as to spread it out more evenly. Of course I do do my exercises unless I have a big day of walking and then get out and walk and walk inside w/o the walker.

That means Wednesday I have PT and the house cleaner comes at 12:30.

I have found the perfect SNACK for evening. I buy the frozen fruit mixture and put plain greek yogurt on it and it is so satisfying. I eat my big meal at noon.
In fact today I had a lot of veggies and watermelon besides other stuff both good and bad. emoticon

So that is my catch up for today Monday the 20th.

    I would take all the PT I could get. My insurance only pays for 20 visits and I will need more. Today I got to walk a short way with a cane. And a belt mg PT clung to like glue--lol I think he thought I was going to crash and burn but I did fine!!!

    I don't think you can get too much PT. I just blogged about my knee again. I found out that I stretched the Medial Collateral ligament when the chair broke on May 2 and I fell to the floor. I've been hobbling around and the pain is a bit more now then at first. Anyway..... it is the ligament that is paining me.

    I think it is great that you opted for the extra PT.. You will be so trained for the next surgery and post op routine, it will be easier for you!
Extra sleep builds the immune system, so don't skimp on that either!! You are doing great!!
