PT

I headed to PT for my second session since surgery #2. It turns out that two reasons my left knee is healing so well are a) Dr H mainly performed a lateral release whereas my right knee had a lateral release AND chondroplasty and b) I only have two incisions this time (last time I had three - and one was somewhat biggish).

Anyway, PT was fine & dandy. It's always great to shoot the breeze with Jim as he helps me rehab my knees. I happened to mention that I was spending Saturday watching my friends compete at the Kinetic Half. Jim told me that it would be a very, very bad idea to go.

Huh?

He (patiently) pointed out that I'm only 8 days out from surgery. Standing/walking around all day was not a wise move at this time. So, I may try to catch the end of the run - or I may just have to wait for you all to fill me in on the day.

Meanwhile, I was able to spin on the stationary bike for a little while. I am weeks ahead of my recovery from my first surgery.

And that is almost as nice as the sun (finally) shining...
