David continues to undergo physical therapy at Straub twice or thrice per week. On Monday, he got on the recumbent bicycle:
His wound is getting better. However, the PT told David that there are still scabs, so he is not ready to soak his leg in the hot tub and pool at the gym. Bacteria could get into his knee and wreak havoc:
Last Sunday, David surprised me by driving to Jack in the Box for fast food. This restaurant is just down the street from our home. It was his first time driving since his surgery on June 23. But, he told me he does not feel strong enough to drive to Straub, so I will continue to drive him on long distances.
I have lost quite a bit of weight since becoming his caregiver. I have to do his chores as well as mine, plus be his go-for every time he needs food, drink, medicine, or an icepack for his knee. I reassure myself that this stress is only temporary and he will soon be able to resume his regular activities.
On Wednesday, I will have to drive David for his physical therapy appointment at 8:30 am and then drive myself for my appointment with my own doctor at 1:00 pm.
