My mom only had one therapist who'd meet that description Becky. The others were very good and the sessions did their work pretty well.
Good luck with yours Arni!

Well, my foot isn't moving that much more that I could tell.  However, I just got the half way through evaluation and I got a 1/5 in my foot and I started off with a 0/5.

Healthwise, these last two weeks have been busy!!  Two weeks ago tomorrow, I was passing a large kitty on my morning walk that I had petted and given many scritches every time I saw him.  Well, on that particular Monday, he decided it was time for an Augmentin-worthy injury.  I didn't notice the redness and swelling at first because of a sunburn and I didn't even think it was that bad.  At my next Oncology check-up, I think I got scolded by Dr. K for the first time!  In the scheme of things, there may have been a reason for the injury from that neighborhood kitty.  Sometime that week, I cracked a tooth on a stone in some pumpkin seeds and indeed I broke the tooth and there is a pretty clean hole in it now.  Well, if you ever have to be on Medicaid, you can't just go into a dentist without a bunch of calling around first.  The Augmentin that I was taking for the kitty-inflicted injury probably kept any ifection down while I called around.  Also, I just had my last "heavy" chemo, and I had to get passed the dizzyness I usually get ton the third day after chemo.  I take the last Augmentin pill tonight...and I'm just gonna make it into see a dentist tomorrow!

Yes I did find a dentist and he is my hero!cheers Since he said he could save my tooth with a root canal, I decided to go ahead with it.  The dentist also found three cavities, one of which they took care of with no extra cost to me.  Of course there are other things that I would rather do with the money, but at the same time I am thrilled that I don't have to start on my journey to toothlessness at 39!cheers  The other two cavities will be taken care of after I run it past my oncologist next week.  After all, Dr. K did scold be a bit for that kitty-inflicted injury...Embarassed

Glad you found a nice dentist like that, and got two out of four problems dealt with already.  Maybe the oncologist is concerned about the physical stress having teeth worked on puts on an already stressed body?  Maybe he wants to give some preventative antibiotics that won't interact with the chemo?  scratch

I'll ask about all that at my next oncology appointment on Thursday.  Before scheduling the cap over the root canal and the two fillings, my regular doc advised letting my oncologist know about what I have planned.  I'm just hoping I can have it all done at once so I only one visit to the dentist!

Physical therapy also involves doing some of the excersizes at home too.  One of the exersizes involves leaning in various directions as far as I can without falling over.  While doing this one earlier today, Bello decided he wanted to start licking my knees...

I am laughing as I type this............guess Bello wanted to encourage you to stretch farther? Does a tongue bath on the knee equal a massage to relax the muscles?

I'm not sure what the licks on the knees meant. Except for that one time, Bello leaves me alone when I do my physical therapy excersizes. Beans is the one that demands attention when I'm busy doing that.

No need to worry! I'm doing fine and I just had a surgery consult today!.

I mostly haven't been on here because the neighbor's wi-fi I was scamming isn't available. The library here was being remodeled and was just finished. I'll be on soon. I'm doing this from my phone now and it's fairly awkward Razz
