The day after

Thursday, March 08, 2012

Sooo, yesterday was Physical torture, I mean Physical Therapy. This morning my back told me in no uncertain terms that it was severely unhappy with the whole thing. I found this out the moment I tried to roll out of bed, a near impossibility again. Ugh. So I got myself up, brushed myself off, and promptly fell asleep in the recliner. When I did get up later, my mobility was better, still sore, so I used the TENS unit. I was glad I did not have to work today. And I only had to drive briefly.

Tonight, I am more mobile again, and will have dinner with a friend, and then spend some time visiting and crocheting. Tomorrow I work.

I took today as a total rest day, and did not do any extra exercise. My body needs the recovery day. Big time. I wonder how many of these I will be needing on a weekly basis right now? It's ok. One baby step at a time. The day after is part of the process, as recovery is important. Tomorrow I will move again, and walk at work, and hope to get some kind of 10 minutes of activity in. Slow happening works.

    Stay with your Plan Debora, maybe you can do a few seated exercises, difficult with three surgeries in a year. I hope the summer sun will be helpful. HUGS Pat in Maine,

    "I wonder how many of these I will be needing on a weekly basis right now? It's ok. One baby step at a time. The day after is part of the process, as recovery is important." So very, very true. Recovery is important and you must allow your body to heal.
