There was no relax phase. My rehab began Monday after the surgery. I was to contract my thigh muscles and do leg lifts. Ouch. Today’s physical therapy (PT) session confirmed why. If I don’t straighten and even hyperextend my knee in the first few days/weeks, then I will likely never be able to. I am at straight as of today, thanks to my surgery-day work. Two more degrees and I’ll be where I’m supposed to be.
After PT today, Constance asked me how I was enjoying my convalescence and relaxation. We laughed. I’ve been busy and working the entire time. I said, well maybe I’ll get luck and rupture my spleen or something. Can’t imagine much rehab for that in the first few weeks.
Another random thought…. I put joking on hold, fortunately for the healthcare workers I’ve been in contact with. I figure there has been comedy gold, but the only one I’d be amusing is myself. This is serious business. Besides, I can feed it all back into my comedy routine.
