Today my PT therapist came to the cottage and I was struck by how much she reminds me of one of my nieces. She looks, talks, laughs and seems as sweet. The result is that I feel motivated to give her my very best. Wonderful.
I am now working on learning how to do squats and kicks. I never did them with my God given knees but it seems I will be with my new ones. Who would have thunk?
It also seems I am about to graduate from chairs with arms to include those without. This is much earlier than I had expected and frankly makes me nervous but I am hoping to be up to the challenge.
I am getting back into the household routine by starting to be responsible for the laundry again. I never thought I would say this but it feels good. I consider it to be a form of OT.
Another OT thing I intend to do tomorrow is make a birthday cookie for a friend. Baking is a wonderful form of OT as far as I am concerned. Therapy you can eat.
Tomorrow is also the day I get my stitches out. I cannot believe things are moving along so fast. I am beginning to feel I am sprinting a marathon.
