Day 1: complete

My first day back at physical therapy was great!  I was able to bend my knee to 78 degrees for the first time after keeping it straight for two weeks!  Now, this is where the game starts.  Yes, being able to keep my leg straight is very important but bending is  where it gets tough.  I have to do my exercises everyday which include:  heel slides, wall slides, ankle pumps, quad sets and straight leg raises.  It is very painful, but I gotta do it!  My goal is to get back to school and not have to be on crutches because I am living on the third floor, yikes!!

Here is my knee bending at around 78 degrees!
