Physical Therapy today was pretty rough. I usually go with my friend Iris so we can take turns watching the boys for one another. Clarke stayed at home today with his Papa while I went for torture!!! We had a new therapist today named Christina. She and I are the same age. She's a feisty little thing with hands made of steel. I told her she had magic hands. Iris went first today, thank goodness. I knew after seeing Christina do her therapy that mine wasn't going to be a soft treatment either.
Iris finished up and then it was my turn. Christina left and came back in with a basket FULL of suction cups, some small some large. Well today instead of 2 I had around11. They were all over my back. I didn't cry today, although I wanted to. The pain I experienced is well worth the after results. I am still pretty tense and will be sore for several days, but I can definitely tell that my back is not near as tight as it was. I've been told that I will probably have these same problems for a lifetime, due to the fact that I have a shallow spine and that my spine is not shaped correctly. I never knew this, but have always wondered why it hurt so bad when I stand up straight for long periods of time. *Mrs. Kathy all those years at the dance studio that you hollered at me to "STAND UP STRAIGHT CLARK" we know why now!*
Now, im heading to the Franken Therme for 4 1/2 hours of relaxation with the hubby. We're going to do Sauna treatments, Salt Pool, Wellness Pools, Back Messages, Turkish Steam Bath :-) and just have some time together for the first time in a LONG time!
Relaxing in Germany, but bound for Alabama in 2 days and a wake up!
