    There are good and bad therapists just like with anything else. It's just hard to figure out which one is which when you are just out of surgery and have to take into consideration location, insurance, schedule, etc. My first outpatient PT was good and my second one was excellent. If I had a third hip to replace, I'd be golden - but I am careful what I wish for!

    @KathyD
    If you had a third hip, you’d be gifted!

    I think I found a creative new approach to the ODIC. Yesterday, I took a serious rest day. Spent most of the day in the recliner, and didn't go anywhere but the post office. When I stretched out to go to sleep, the right glute assembly complained. Nothing else hurt. Finally realized that it was from sitting too much! The muscles were tight from being in the chair all day.

    First time I've suffered Desk Butt since I left defense contracting!

    That certainly happens too.
    It's definitely a dance...:umm:
    I also found my lower back would ache with too much sitting.:sigh:
    I would get up and raise my arms overhead and lean to the sides a bit to relieve the pressure.
    I hope today is a good day.

    As a former restaurant chef, I'd say that even with a recipe, you have to adjust as you go!

    I think the recipe would need to be titled "Pot Luck"

    A recipe is a suggestion, not always the final answer.

    Every now and then I start writing a cookbook, but the actual recipes get too rambly -- all those possible variations!

    I have trouble with that part too because I never actually measure anything! Then if there's an extra something or other in the pantry, it might get added in too. Hey isn't that how great chefs are born? :heehee:

    One thing I love about cooking at home as opposed to restaurants is the freedom to experiment. Aside from specials, you want your menu items to be consistent, so that the person who comes to your restaurant because they really enjoy a specific menu item, so you can't randomly change things.

    I probably made over 3000 gallons of restaurant seafood gumbo, and prided myself in keeping it the same over time. When tourists come back year after year, you owe them.

    Now, every batch is an adventure. A purist might say this batch or that one isn't "authentic" or even really gumbo, but they don't have to eat it.

    This is why I love to cook but hate to bake. The precision of baking stresses me out!

    Kind of like auto repair. Sometimes you have a few extra parts left when you’re done! :rotfl:

    The recipe for recovery can be variable too, but don't want my fritters flat or my cake to fall.
    So I stuck to the tried and true until I knew my body could handle the variations.

    Hope today is a good day @59billy

    Good one @Mojo333

    I can’t stick to a recipe either... always add a bit of this... a bit of that... and I do not bake... far too rigid!!

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!
