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. :)
