Physical Therapy

This morning I had my first visit with my physical therapist since we found my infection in early April. The session lasted about an hour and a half.

Before we started, I could bend my foot up about 25 degrees. When we finished, it was around 37 degrees. That's a good improvement for one session.

Most of the time was spent on manipulating and stretching the connective tissues between the bones of my foot. Because my foot has been immobile for four months, the tissues surrounding the bones have contracted. I walk with an epic limp.

After we finished therapy, my foot was hilariously sore to walk on. It makes me wonder if I'll be able to use a cane.

Speaking of canes, it arrived this evening. The flames are intimidating.
