    My knees were very sore after yesterday's jaunt in the park. My P.T. session was quite the workout too. Ryan used the "cannon" on me to roll over those tight IT bands on the outside of my thighs. That really hurts. I continue to do 9 minutes on the Nu-step, maxing out at 116 steps per minute at ... Read more

  • Part II: How upset should I be?

    7/24/2017 10:18:37 PM, by CTUPTON

    304 Your wise comments gave me some perspective on this. This set of aides I have and the woman that keeps them scheduled have been wonderful. This is the second time in 10 months no one showed up. I think it is a pretty good record. I was told a typed phone message did not go through fr... Read more

    The health aides got mixed up this morning so DH missed his gastroenterology appointment at noon. I, obviously, called to say we could not get there. It was rescheduled for Aug. 1 but 9:15 am. On a scale of 1-10, how upset should I be? I had a physical therapy appointment schedule... Read more
