Physical therapy.

I’ve been going to physical therapy for my hip twice a week at The Christ Hospital Joint and Spine Center…

It hasn’t been bad. Every session gets a little bit harder but in baby steps. I’ve heard people describe their physical therapy as physical torture. But mine seems to be really helping. I’ve already moved from two crutches to one crutch to a cane. And I can walk around the house unassisted without any additional support. I can take stairs one at a time again instead of having to put both feet on each and every stair. I can see progress being made. And it hasn’t been that bad at all. It’s a bit sore afterward. But the next day, it feels better than ever. I hope it stays that way. 😀🏥❤️

Physical therapy x Higher Gravity.

I had my first session of physical therapy for my hip this evening…

It went pretty good. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. But then again, nothing about this entire hip replacement process has been as bad as I thought it would be. Not even close. At all. I thought every step of this process was going to be far more grueling and painful than it’s actually turned out to be. So in my mind, I either really overexaggerated how horrible an experience I thought this would be and braced for the worst possible scenario at each and every step of this process, or this has been a study in the best possible case scenario for a complete hip replacement. At the end of June, I’ll be having my left hip replaced. It’ll be interesting to see how that experience compares to this experience. I hope it’s very much the same, an identical experience or an even better experience than what I am working through right now. Because this really hasn’t been that bad at all.

Anyway. After my first physical therapy session, we stopped at Higher Gravity for a beer. We hadn’t been to HG for almost three weeks. The last time we were there was to watch Xavier knock off Georgetown in OT back at the beginning of February…

We stopped in tonight because we wanted to try #11, the Hawaiian Speedway Stout

And it was awesome! It was also awesome to be able to get out of the house and do something again…

Only 10 more physical therapies to go! 😀🍻❤️
