Today was a day of “rest” & “pampering “.
I wanted Kyah to do some exercise, but her little body is sore. Her pecs, lats, shoulders, arms & hands are sore from using the crutches. Her left leg is sore from the introduced weight bearing.
We compromised: she stretched while she was doing a little bit of balance work & weight bearing!
Her foot that has not seen a shower for weeks now, was looking quite rank. It is constantly shoved in a garbage bag to prevent it getting wet in the shower – this fibreglass cast cannot get wet. The state of her foot was obviously bothering her, so I set her up to scrub her toes & whatever part of her foot she could reach.
She scrubbed, rubbed, cleaned & felt so much better afterwards.
Tomorrow will be some serious exercise, if I have anything to do with it! Today has been a reprieve for her. I suppose we are both learning lessons now… I learned to ease up with the exercise. ?
