That's why it's hotter under the water

Yesterday at my physical therapy appointment I got in the pool. Normally, I hate swimming. Yech. I've never liked it.

Yesterday, I was able to walk, walk backwards, turn my leg in circles, sing The Little Mermaid's "Under the Sea" over and over in my head and much, much more. Like a normal person, you know?

Yesterday, the pool became my new best friend! It felt so good to be able to move so well, even though it still felt a little strange. Jennifer had to kick me out after 45 minutes.

I feel like I'm making a lot of progress already, even though it's been less than a week that I've been fully weight bearing. Tomorrow it's back to PT again, and I'll be working out on the stationary bicycle. Unfortunately, singing "We got no troubles, life is the bubbles" won't have the same effect as it would in the pool. :)

You made me giggle so hard at this. I can just see you singing this while in the pool. I can imagine you doing some crazy synchro thing with a water fountain in the middle too :)

I'm so happy for you. After the holiday is over next week, we need to do dinner. I'll find out what night Reba and Erin are available and we can have a date!

Hugs!
