This morning my girlfriend Chris had a lab blood draw, the first in a series. To regulate one of her post surgery medicines she needs twice weekly blood draws for 2 weeks. This was her first journey down the stairs of the house since we got back from Rochester and thus her first venture outside.
It was work but she made it. And then we were back out in the afternoon for her first physical therapy appointment. This was an easy appointment because, as the therapist says, she likes to make friends with her patients on the first visit. Knowing that later appointments won’t be as pleasant this is a good strategy for the therapist.
Chris was pretty exhausted after all of this and now she has a regimen of exercises to do twice a day during her recovery, starting tomorrow.
It was a good day.
