This morning I was up bright and early with a tummy full of anticipation! I was like a kid getting ready for the first day of school, however for me; it was my first day of physical therapy.
I wasn’t nervous per say, but I was definitely anxious – anxious to get started and anxious to see where exactly I stood. I haven’t been involved in this type of intense physical therapy since 2010 and so I was hoping I hadn’t regressed too much. Thankfully, I hadn’t.
We began with my evaluation – I’ve got good range of motion, decent balance, my hip flexors are firing…as well as my gluts, and some decent strength in my arms. I was quite pleased! Nonetheless, my goals for my time here is to really work on my balance, my, core and my transfers so guess what we worked on for the next two hours? Abs, scaps, back, and much, much more. Plus I got to stand for about 25 minutes or so.
All in all, it was a pretty successful day, but I knew it would be. Our stay thus far has been the perfect start for us – yesterday we started out our day with church then headed down to Greektown for some lunch and hit up the casino just long enough to lose $20. When we returned home, I sat out and read my book awhile and then finished up my evening with some work.
It’s been great so far and I can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring!
PS – Sorry I’ve been lacking in the picture department…I promise, there will be more to come!
