Today, Kyah woke up feeling really sore, and her foot was stiff and swollen – more so than usual.
She tried to do some gentle range of motion dorsi and plantar flexion with her foot, and some gentle squats but the pain in her foot was too much. She had to stop.
I think the mobilising of the joints the physio did yesterday really upset her foot. So we had to go back to plan A – RICE and ultrasound.
We tried the rehab and stability but Kyah just couldn’t do it today. Very disappointing for Kyah but I explained to her she is going to have set backs in this journey and her being able to get through them is character building and will make her more determined to achieve her goals.
The chiropractor I am working with has been seeing Kyah on a fairly regular basis. He has been looking at her back and neck and adjusting them when necessary. 4 days ago he looked at her foot and did some tapping on it and Kyah reported it feeling a whole lot better. Maybe we need to reassess the treatments Kyah receives….
Just by chance we came across this passage today: Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands. Isaiah 43: 18-19
Let’s hold onto that promise – …a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands…
Tomorrow is another day, let’s take the road out of the desert. Let’s hope Kyah is able to do some stability and gentle strength work tomorrow. She won’t get stable and strong with just RICE and ultrasound.
