Just around the Bend...

Well today was the day of manipulation, so we arrived at Reno Orthopedic Center at 7:30, and like always, they were running around an hour behind, but it was fast, Jay called me and said he hadn't been seen yet, then they put him under anesthesia and he called me 40 mins. later and said he was ready to be picked up.  I took him to breakfast at Archies Famous Grill and it was fun, he fell asleep at the table 4 times, once in the middle of stirring his coffee.  Afterwards he got to go straight into therapy for an hour and tonight they want him to ride a stationary bike, so he will be going to a spinning class with me at 6:30. Isn't that amazing, he went from a 70 degree bend and now he is at 108 degrees and he should be at 150 degrees and feeling perfect in the next two weeks.....so while I spin, he can ride a comfortable pace just to keep his knee loose.  I'm glad we are spinning tonight because last night I took the body conditioning class

and after the really fun 500 or more jumping jacks we did for warm up, I think the bottom of my right foot is bruised.  I also liked the part where we got to stretch on leg straight on the floor and lift the other one straight up over our head and touch our toe to the floor with our heel touching the other floor OH and keep your back straight at the same time.  I would tell you the rest of the fabulous moves but I am trying to block them out of my memory until next Monday at 5:30 (in case anyone would like to join me).

That whole manipulation thing is just amazing! I can't believe that he was ready to do a spinning class last night. Gee, I'd love to do that fitness class with you. I'll check my calendar. Oh darn! I have to feed the dog and read the paper on Monday. Sorry.

I would seriously consider taking that conditioning class, but not until I can get myself into some semblance of physical fitness. I don't think going in totally out of shape and stiff will work. I remember that class vividly. Mom thought I was exaggerating when I told her you have to do like 1000 crunches.
