It's Monday...started off making myself get out of bed (because I would rather just sleep a wee bit longer). I need a little push to remind myself that I have a lot to get out of bed for and be thankful for.
I had physical therapy first thing this morning. It's every Monday and Thursday as long as insurance will authorize the visits. Insurance seems to regulate all things for our health. Anyway, I do enjoy going and I hope to get a bit stronger so that I can do more and more to heal this darn old knee.
The ACL surgery went well and at my last doctor's visit, I was told that I am healing nicely. But, when I went back to my physical therapist, he said that I'm a little behind where I should be. I had a couple of slight mishaps following surgery. I went to dinner with friends for a surprise birthday party and one of my friends kept bumping into my knee as she "forgot". At one point, she slammed it into the table leg as I kept re-adjusting to try to get further away from her. Being in a crowded restaurant is not the best place for someone with a leg brace on crutches with a clumsy friend who has the attention span of a baby. Needless to say, I have not been out with her since that night. On one other occasion, I drank a little too much wine and put weight on it when I wasn't supposed to. I have been very careful ever since and trying to do the best I can to get this healed....it's such a slow process!
After a nice cool break, we are being reminded that it's still summer. The high today is 99 but it's supposed to rain, which we really need, and then it will be cooler tomorrow before it heats back up the rest of the week. I enjoy summer...just like it better by the pool!
I hope that everyone reading this takes a moment to count their blessings and be thankful for a purpose to get out of bed. Have a great day!
