Ninja PT...

Today was my first day with Kim. I call her the Ninja Physical Therapist. She did something amazing while causing me great hurt. She dug her long fingers in between the muscle fibers in my scapula and rotator cuff muscles --and tendons. Holy cow, I nearly came off the table with the pain!

Then she stretched my arm beyond the 'Outer Limits' and quietly said...'hold it, while I measure'. Oh yeah. As painful as it all was?------

I walked out of there today with NO charlie horses in my muscles, these have been plaguing me since the surgery. My muscles needed a release and she was the one to do it and quite effectively.

I feel ready to take on the world...ah sorta. Still have that range of motion to contend with, but yes, an incredibly positive day.

LOL!! but I'm so glad things are going well. You are really a fast healer.
Like the art work...haven't been to Flickr for a while so haven't seen much of your new work. Trying to make time and when it's made will have to work on my bathroom. Iyee! Haven't had much time for anything since starting the job. I'll get back into the swing soon.
