Good News Tuesday

I received good news today, and Meg received GREAT news today. Click on Meg's name to read her story. So my good news is that I went to physical therapy today for my "eval," and the P.T. dude's name was "Naga." What's up with that?! First "Nuno," now "Naga?" I must be on Candid Camera (Yes Meg, I'm dating myself here)or something. Anyhow, to make a long story short, it appears I'm OK to run. Best he can tell is that I don't have any meniscus tears or anything seriously wrong. Of course he twisted and turned my leg and knee every which way, and I never felt any pain. I'll be spending some time in their gym doing strengthening exercises and stretching. Oh, and I found out that I've been doing my stretching wrong, and therefore making my knee pain and other pains even worse. More on this late breaking story as details become available...meaning I couldn't schedule any P.T. appointments today, so I have to call and schedule them tomorrow. Thanks everyone for your well wishes-they worked. :-)

Hugs and a "laugh out loud" at Naga and your Candid Camera comment(you're dating yourself now). You have already started to weave a little story I can tell...I'm glad you're back and correcting your incorrect stretches :) ! Thanks for the shout out, I'm very happy.

I think your knee hurts because it knows you are a mets fan. And that makes it sad.

Good news about the knee; learn the right way to stretch and then share it with me - I am worse then terrible about stretching.
