Physical Therapy And Occupational Therapy Started Already

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

It is only one week since my terrible fall and I've already started physical therapy and occupational therapy. The two therapists came to our house yesterday. They examined me and set up a program for me. By the time I was ready for sleep last night, my body was screaming loudly. It was difficult for me to fall asleep. Once I did, I slept like a rock! I feel much better this morning too. Thank goodness for my back brace. It gives support to that fractured vertebrae. My PT had me take off the brace to sleep. This gives my skin a chance to breathe and keeps the brace from rubbing. I think we may also have a theory as to why I've been falling. If that could be treated and falls avoided, I would be very grateful. Today, I am feeling much more positive. I am supposed to get a shower today. I can't wait!

    Hoping you get to the bottom of the falls in order to avoid them. I hate falls! They can do so much damage. I am so sorry for all your pain and suffering. You have been through more different challenges than anyone else I know. I so admire your unwavering spirit. Best wishes for full recovery. -Marsha

    Love how you are finding the positives. That shower will make you feel so much better. Another positive, you are getting some exercise via your Therapist or at least that is what I told myself during physical setbacks. Thinking and sending good thoughts. emoticon

    Glad things are looking up for you. You are quite the trooper. Sure hoping the theoretical cause of the falls can be treated and avoided. That would be awesome!
