Started physical therapy today

I was almost thinking maybe I didn’t need PT, because I’ve got the full range of motion back in my shoulder now and I can do almost everything I could do before. (Doing a crown braid, which is a braid that circles your head and involves Dutch-braiding up one side of your head and down the other, remains impossible. But I figured, wait awhile longer…)

But alas, it turns out I need PT. When the physical therapist tested my arm she discovered it was remarkably weak. Like, she made me hold up my arms out in front of me and pushed on them and told me to try not to let them drop. I could keep the left one up. The right one dropped like a stone at the slightest pressure. So, arm-strengthening exercises for me. I got instructions on how to do to them and was told to come back next week.

    Hey ya Meaghan – so how’s the PT going? Are you doing the exercises at home regularly I hope?! And by now I can expect that you are already sitting in your new ergo-chair, right? I was sorry to read of the loss of Michael’s friend. It’s good that you were there for him. Hope he’s liking his new job too.

    Question – I was going to see it this might fit somewhere on your fb page (I don’t have one) to see it you’d post it some time. Just came across this site when looking at some news out of New Mexico, and I want as many people to be aware of it. We all know people shouldn’t leave children and pets in hot cars, but sadly every year people do. This site has a pdf that can be downloaded that shows how fast the temps can rise in a car. It’s a organization called Don’t Leave Me – Hot Cars Kills Dogs.
