3rd week of therapy

Completed my 3rd week of therapy. With the holiday this week, I only went on Thursday. It was a good session for both pt and ot.

 

In pt, I used the nusp for r 10 minutes. I walked around the room with Kelly timing me to see how far I could walk in 6 minutes. I can't remember (darn short term memory) how far I walked; Kelly did say that I walked farther than I did the first time she clocked me :i_did_it!:

 

The remainder of my pt time was doing activities at the parallel bars (stepping up on wooden box while standing and balancing on soft foam - 3 sets of ten, stepping over and back a quad cane lying on the floor - 3 sets of 10, semi-squats - 30 - this time I managed to squat lower, walking the length of the parallel bars sideways with a therand tied a around my legs - 7 times each way

 

In ot, Lyn p placed large colored pegs into a mat and I had to pull them out and release them onto a folded towel. Success!!! :thumbup: It was a slow process as Lynne had to keep stretching out my fingers. She did say though that my fingers were loser than they have been. During breaks I was also able to stretch them out a lot easier than I could before. I finished up ot with rolling a wooden spool covered in velcro across a velcro covered board board. Lynne also had the idea that I should be able to pull the spool off the velcro board - not yet as the hand isn't that strong.

 

Off to week 4 of therapy next week :out_of_here:

Hi Donna,

Hearing about how a person strives for progress, and listening to them

describe their cumulative achievements (every one of them important, no matter how seemingly large or small) is wonderful and inspiring to others.

 

:thumbs up: :D :D :D Thanks, Donna.

Good for you. :Clap-Hands: You will get that hand to open with relative ease in a short time. For some reason, my hand does not clench (except when I sneeze or cough) so I am able to use it to hold things. I hope this happens for you. However, I cannot pick anything up except when I have the Saeboflex on.

 

Keep up the good work.
