Physical Therapy and a Sweater

I got rid of the splint this week

Now I have to go for physical therapy

Because that's how specialists work

MD: "Your broken bones are totally healed. You're free to go!"

Soxanne: "But I want full use of my thumb back!?!"

MD: "Of course! For that we have physical therapists. Here's a list"

Luckily I found one on the list that is on my bus route

Very, very handy

The hand therapist is a lovely young woman

I saw her this morning

She had on an amazing sweater

So I asked her the obvious: "Did you make your sweater?"

PT: "No, actually, I got it at the Goodwill!"

Soxanne: "No kidding!"

I had a hard time focusing on the physical therapy

Kept looking at the sweater and trying to analyze its structure

Gotta work on those range of motion exercises

Pay attention to the PT

So I can knit more

Maybe even a sweater

Clearly, you and that PT are a match made in heaven. If you are a good patient maybe she would let you borrow the sweater for a few days to analyze it.
