@marieltha It is always a perfect day to hug a cat. If only the cat agreed...lol I haven't so much finished PT as I have stopped because I get 20 sessions a year and I want the other 10 for the next knee. Of course I did read absolutely everything in the articles archive while I was freaking out pre-surgery. Somehow knowing that down days are a completely expected part of the recovery process didn't make me feel any better in the moment. Nothing ever does when you're down. Shhhh. It's a secret! I'm going to surprise them! That is definitely the most important truth of all right? Everything is better than that, whatever challenges the healing brings.
