The End of an Era

After 22 months and over a hundred visits, I am done with physical therapy. This doesn't mean that I have no more issues with my ankle, it just means that I am as good as I am going to get. I was discussing being done with my friendly PT at my last visit, when he got teary. As I finished my obstacle course and prepared to ice my foot, he gave me a hug good-bye. I got teary. Then one of aides joined in, and another patient looked at me and said "How long have you been in PT." 22 months I answered immediately. 22 tumultuous months, and my PT has been there every step of my journey. I am so grateful for his help and support and that it has let me get to where I am now. When I talked to my doctor about stopping PT, she declared that my ankle might be stronger than hers. Probably an exaggeration, but there is no denying that my ankle is pretty strong now. So, Joanthan, from the bottom of my heart- Thanks

Last night I saw them at the Hollywood Bowl and they were awesome.

Tonight I am going to see them at a Hollywood Screening

Soon I will update you all on my trip to NYC and follow up with my docs, but for now I am too busy trying to be Single and Fabulous!, not ?

How I spent my Friday..

I took Friday off of work and long ago decided to spend it with my godson to celebrate his birthday. I decided a couple of months ago that the kid really doesn't need anything, but I want him to know that we have a special relationship. So, I floated the idea of doing something special with him to his mom who suggested the Noah's Ark exhibit at the Skirball museum. This is a giant interactive exhibit made for the toddler to preschool age set. The kids can touch and play with everything. Genius

Kyle delighted in ringing the bell that was supposed to be the dear's heart.

He looked on in awe as he made it rain by pumping an old style water pump.

He filled the arc two by two with little animals and was so proud of the progress.

He climbed on the camels guarding the way into the pantry.

Then we go to the piece de resistance- the climbing area. Up and down and around he went.

On the way out he counted all of the snails in the garden, and I had to fight the fact that I am my mother's daughter and my first impulse is to squash the snails. When we finally left, he was so tired that he could hardly focus but very happy. A successful adventure I would say.
