Feeling optomistic

I had a doctor's appointment today, and it went really well.  First, she prescribed physical therapy for my knee. I go for an evaulation on Wednesday.  She said that if the pt doesn't help, then we'll consider an MRI.  I'm really hoping the PT helps!

And, she tested my reflexes.  She actually found one achiles reflex.  For the longest time, I have had no response in either foot.  Today, the right foot had a very weak response, but it was there.  Still nothing in the left, but it's progress.  She says that it probably means the switch in thyroid medication is working.  But, that I need to be patient since it can take up to three months to fully see results.  But, this is progress and I'm happy!

I got home toolate togo to the muscle challenge class, but did make it to yoga.  I wore my knee brace and was very careful.  It felt so good to move.  And, when I left, my knee was feeling OK.  Still pain in some positions, but not nearly as tight as it's been feeling.  It's such a balance between rest and movement to get it feeling good.  I do hope the PT works!
