Reflex Neurovascular Rehab: After the First Day

I got home from my first day of therapy at The Children’s Institute. The morning consisted mostly of assessments. I had a grilled chicken sandwich, fries plus a Klondike bar for lunch, which I burned through. It was kind of disturbing. I haven’t eaten that big a meal for lunch in a long time. (I find I get a lot of stomach trouble from the RND.) Some of the therapy was gruelling, I didn’t like the 6 min. jog/run and the inchworm animal walk was hard. Really, freaking hard. I did all of it though. The inchworm is where your bending over, hands flat on the floor and your feet touching the ground behind you, with your legs almost straight. Once you get in that position you move one hand forward and the next then one foot and the other. It was hard to cover any amount of ground because it was slow going. I like that my day (8am-4pm) ends with some hydrotherapy. They have 2 pools but the larger one’s pump is broken. It was a really lovely, albeit small therapy pool, nice and warm as well. While I was in pain doing the animal walks the only other thing that was a problem is the tightness in my back and shoulders. It is annoyingly achy.

After I got back from the hospital my brother, Mom and I went to Target. I scored a Star Trek (the original) and Wolverine t-shirt. Did you know that those pretty black and speckled white composition that I lust after in Canada and can’t find anywhere are only a 1.50$ here (Pittsburgh)? I love notebooks. Anyways, I also picked up a Flip UltraHD. OK, I’ll post more tomorrow, I can’t keep my eyes open.
