Physical Therapy

I had my first physical therapy session this week. My mom didn’t watch because she felt she was going to be too much of a distraction the first time, so she only has reports from the tech who worked with me! They said I did really well, I got to go on the water treadmill, they said I didn’t know what to do the first two times they put me in, but the third time I had it down and I walked for a minute and a half! woo-hoo. They gave my mom like 4 pages of exercises to do with me! Holy cow…we are still working on getting them all done throughout the day, but there are some my mom can’t do for me by herself so we will have to get alternatives this week when we go to PT. I will go once a week for the next 5 weeks.

Yesterday my mom was a little surprised because I wasn’t using my only rear leg, she said that sometimes people really feel the affects two days after physical therapy so she said maybe dogs are the same! She said her life has become a little easier lugging me around in the sling because I have been using my surgically repaired leg more, but she says I must have just been too tired yesterday to try to use it, so she is the one hurting today because she was getting really used to me taking on some of the work! But she says that I still need to rest more than I do so that I can continue to get stronger! When I go to PT next week, I get my one month set of Xrays done and we are hoping that the doctor might release some of my restrictions!
