It is a one-on-one session with a kinesiologist while I am in the pool; then I see the physiotherapist. It was a great first session everyone agreed. I didn't feel resisted at all with anything I was asked to do, but certainly was sore last night and I am again this morning. It's difficult to tell if I did too much or if this is a normal level of pain at this stage of post op. They are very cautious with me given my recent history and the past spinal injury. I, on the other hand, want to make this work. I feel like I need to move on to this now.
I'm cautious and sensible though as well. I was given an exercise last week to do but having done one session of ten reps I had nerve pain so that was the end of that. I ain't waking up that beast for anyone! I told him about it at this appointment and he totally agreed.
Jerri and Meghan arrived safely last evening and we had the enjoyment of watching Whinnie go crazy when she saw them. She just gets so excited!
It's hard to believe Valerie's time with me is coming to an end. Today is her last day here, she leaves early Sunday morning. She has been such an easy going, go with the flow person during this time. Our house and activities is so boring for the most part these days but she was very content to just be. I'm extremely grateful for that. Not to mention she cooked all the meals and so much more. The girls love her dearly so they are enjoying the opportunity to spend a couple of days with her.
Things are moving along. It doesn't feel much like that physically this morning but I believe once I get up and move around I will feel better.
