Apparently, all the exercises I have done in karate for the past eight years (calf raises, stretching, leg lifts, quad stretches, standing on one leg, squats) have been helping me with my physical therapy. The physical therapist said that at my initial evaluation, I had above average balance standing on my left (good) leg. Which is pretty funny coming from me, the mistress of gracelessness. Anyway, they are pleases with me and have me working on stepping down and squats. (He also said my squats were some of the best he had ever seen.)
I continue to improve and see the doctor next Thursday. I plan on having him write me a note saying I can go back to karate. This is the longest time without karate in the last EIGHT years, and I DO NO LIKE IT ONE LITTLE BIT. I want to be back on the mat beating people. (Not really, but you get the idea. lol
I will keep you posted. Oh yeah, I am down 3.5 pounds. Hope everyone is doing well.
