Monday motivation- okay! As most of you know, I recently tore my ACL (not just a little, but completely). Yikes! It has been tough to say the least! We all know that teaching is hard enough at 100 % health. Let’s just say physical therapy (PT) has been quite unenjoyable. 👊 😂 To put it nicely (well, not sure this is very nice), but when they push my knee down or “encourage with their hands” the bending of my knee, I want to take my crutches and…well, I’ll stop there (to be nice).
The bending of my knee has been the hardest. I have gone from a 55 degree bend to a bend of 87 degrees. Yes! My goal yesterday was 82, and with just a little “encouragement” from the therapist (🙄), I made it to 87. I was beyond happy!
Since my injury, I’ve worked my way from rolling around on a stool at school, to using crutches, moving to only one crutch, to using a walker, and now to some baby steps ON MY OWN. Progress, people! Yes!
Throughout this experience (if I can call it that) I have been reminded of how blessed we are when we have our health. I hope you all have a marvelous Monday. And with that, I’ll leave you with a few TikToks. I’d love for you to join me over @passionateaboutlifeteach
Until next time,
