The Swells of Therapy

Started physical therapy last week. This morning was my second session. It's very intense - doing repetitive and strenuous exercises to strengthen my ankle, knee, and hip. I like it; I'm thankful that I have something I can work toward. Therapy gives me a goal and a set path of routines and exercises to reach it. It's hard, really hard, but I prefer the difficulties of therapy to the difficulties of just waiting for my bones to heal.

However, with therapy comes swelling. My ankle has been blowing up like a balloon since my first session last week. I've iced it, but the swelling is constant... and painful! More on my road to recovery later. Taking some motrin (for the swelling) and going to bed.
