Knee Update

I’m glad it’s Wednesday!! I’m really looking forward to this weekend because Craig is taking me away for my birthday. He planned a weekend for us in Flagstaff. We are really looking forward to it. 🙂 I bought this jacket to keep me warm. Craig also bought us some other goodies this week.

Yesterday I had an appointment with my specialist to discuss my MRI and X-ray results. He said there are a few things we need to keep our eyes on but the ones I will be going to physical therapy for are..

I start physical therapy on Friday. My Dr. said it can be 4-6 weeks before I’m healed. After my PT is done, I have another appointment with the specialist to make sure every thing is 100%. He made it clear he doesn’t want me running more than 1.5 miles at a time. 😦 He started laughing at me when I looked at him like he was crazy. I am going to listen though. I want to get better, I NEED to get better for myself. I want to continue running and this is just something I have to do to make sure I can continue doing it. Six weeks isn’t so bad I guess, It’s already been over a month. Plus he said I can still hike if I want…as long as it doesn’t hurt. The last few times I’ve been okay. I’ll just focus on that and the gym until I can run again. As soon as he clears me…I’m planning my next race 🙂

I’ll keep you updated on the physical therapy. Should be interesting….I don’t know what to expect.
