I had a little “heart to heart” with Nick last night. Some might call it a pep talk, or maybe bitching. Whatever it was, it worked. Today Nick absolutely killed it and had a fantastic day.
LOTS of walking! Lots and lots of it. He had an extended stretching session as well before we went to the pool. He had the pool all to himself for a while and swam continuously for over an hour. He figured out that he can propel himself with just his legs if he’s swimming backward; unlike swimming forward where his legs get him nowhere.
Tonight Nick had his first real massage since his surgery. He has a girl named Kacey he really likes, but she wasn’t available. It always makes us nervous when he tries a new therapist, but thankfully this one was great! And to top it all off, when he got home from the massage his Dad and brother were here waiting for him.
A day with lots of activity and minimal pain, what a blessing to receive on the 15 month anniversary of his accident.
