Finally, progress in my ankle rehabilitation! After 2 1/2 weeks of endless thera-band activities, stretching, icing, elevating, resting, balancing exercises, alphabet air drawing, and the like . . . finally, I was allowed to take a few steps on the treadmill during a recent physical therapy session. It was magical - magical! The 'mill (which I've never been soooo happy to use before) was set on a 4.0 incline and a speed of 3.0 so not overly impressive and it only lasted 5 minutes (I was able to do a whopping total of .25 miles), but it was the most "normal" thing I've been allowed to do since I fell. It felt GREAT! My therapist was awesome enough to take an action photo of me . . .
I have such a long way to go, but this is definitely a step in the right direction!!!!! Thanks for hanging in there with me while I'm rehabbing - it will be a little while longer, but I'll be back!!!!!! One step at a time!
