These past few days have been brutal. I’m glad all of you like the posts which don’t hold a reason because this one is going to be just bitching and updating about my knee surgery.
First things first, I had my first PT appointment yesterday. I decided to go to a place 30 minutes from my house because they do ART, Graston, KT, and video gait analysis. It just seemed like the place would be for athletes or active people, so I decided it was the best bet.
Once I arrived, my PT did an anaylsis of my problems and we came up with a plan. She’s going to try doing some taping for my left knee while we’re doing strength training so hopefully the Plica issues subside because my patella will be stablized while I’m strengthening all of my muscles. I’m hoping so badly this subsides and it’s not because my femurs are like a typical females and putting more pressure on the inside of my knee. Ooof.
So, this is a nice picture I put up on Instagram of my knee. Yeah, this is the wonderful incision from my surgery. The filter I used on Instagram makes it look a lot more raw than it looks like in real life, but the sucker is huge. Thanks to it being a nice big incision, there’s a ton of scar tissue built up in my knee. And guess what we tried to break through in PT?!?!
Other than worrying about my scar tissue issue, I have been trying to read this lovely book so I can go see the movie. It’s a lot different reading a book outside of high school and teachers telling you to read X number of pages per night. I’m still checking Cliff Notes though juuuuuuuust to make sure I’m getting the drift each chapter. Haha. I’m a gem.
Also, I’ve been teasing Elmo by posting “Purchased” stickers on him and playing with him using a laser pointer since I cannot move or chase him. I feel so bad for not being able to play with him and I’m kind of nervous because I read an article against playing with pets using laser pointers. I’m just trying to entertain him, I swear!
Is anyone else reading The Great Gatsby? Do you find it easier to read out of high school/assignments?
Does anyone else use a laser pointer to play with their pets?!
