They Didn't Ask Me


This morning I was sitting up in bed and eating my breakfast, when I looked down -- my stump looked it was lying at a funny angle to the left. Then I realized I was looking at the Ace wrap and it was probably falling off. Did the white 5-ply sock come off in the night?

Uh, no. It was sitting over on the chair. The nurse last night forgot to put it on. And I can't see what's going on.

OK. Whew.

Did handweights outside on the way to the gym. Nice.

In PT we again started straight on the carpet. But this time we did steps forward, sideways and back.

Actually I did steps to the left. Right didn't work. Yet.

And one of my back steps was HUGE. Surprised all of us. (grin)

My back hallway goal was to this short side corridor going down to a new door onto the patio outside the gym. It's been covered in plastic, the hallway that is, for months. But they just did the work in the last day. Apparently the first new door was jamming and sticky. They replaced it.

Finished PT with some wheelchair squats. We haven't done them in a long time. Push back on something and tilt the wheelchair. We used the edge of the steps in the gym. My leg is a lot stronger than it used to be. I'd tilt and hold. Dave started adding resistance. No problem.

Since there are wheelie bars, I am now cleared to do this exercise on my own.
