This time, it was different. My physical therapist's assessment showed that my range of motion has improved. I am having less headaches. We sat and formulated a plan. We are going to focus on increasing my strength and stamina. My left arm is quite week after 50 weeks of limited use. She gave me some simple exercises to try.
I went home sore, but a different kind of sore. A soreness that tells me I am getting stronger and better. I feel good.
