We need to stretch more. A lot more. Nicks poor legs are so tight; he’s got the flexibility of a little old man, or at least an injured dude. When he is laying on his back, and I’m holding one leg up, trying to keep his knee straight, it doesn’t quite get to 90 degrees. And it’s very painful if I move too far, too fast. His left leg is much better off than his right. His right knee has the slightest bend in it, and I’m always working to straighten it as much as possible. Now that his walking date is so near, we have to be focusing on his flexibility so much more. Just sitting up straight with his legs forward on the table is a killer stretch for him right now.
Laser, round four today. There is a noticeable difference in the color of the scar on his back. The doc has been using the laser only half way up his long scar, and you can really see the difference. The treated half is significantly lighter and softer. Nick doesn’t care what the scars look like, but just the fact that we see visible change is a great sign of internal changes as well. He’s having two more sessions this week, then five more over the following two weeks. Seriously wanting some pain reduction from this.
