It reached 50 degrees today and I went outside for a little while to sit in the sunshine!
It takes us a long time to get going in the morning, but we managed to stay on schedule, get two icings on my hip, a shower, breakfast and get to my first post op physical therapy session by 11:00.
When I saw Erica I told her I was doing poorly, hurting lots. When I showed her where she said that was normal. When she had me get up on the table I swung my legs up and she said, "Wow!, 90 % of people who've just had their hip sawed four days ago can't do that at all!"
Erica has been my PT therapist for many years and knows all of my issues. She is wonderful. I called her my cheerleader. Apparently I am doing OK!
The exercises she had me do, now that I have instruction, are going to help, and the massaging she did relaxed some very tight thigh muscles. Tom watched and is helping me at home.
I was discouraged but now I am back on track.
