First Physical Therapy Appointment Done

I had gone before, but it was more of a building a profile and getting some light exercises to get the swelling down and more movement before we started the real exercises. I got there early (30 minutes) and he went ahead and saw me pretty quick. I started with this wood block balancing thing. It was uncomfortable at first, but I finally got the hang of it. I was on a balance ball thing, placed my foot on circles while balancing on my bad ankle, and walked a taped ladder on the floor. Also, I got to do this watching David Villa and Merci playing for Barcelona (HOT)! My Physical Therapist noticed that I'm an overachiever. I wanted to immediately take my hands away, but it was hard to do that so quickly since I was putting all my weight on my bad ankle. Afterwards, he wrapped me in ice to get the swelling down. My ankle hurt, but I already feel better this morning.

Next appointment is tomorrow and then one on Friday. Soon, this will be done.
