Rehab YAYYY 5

Well, rehab is going pretty well. I had to add a little more work to the mix, because we discovered a little problem with the old back-er-oo, in the form of a herniated disc. Between L4 and L5. HNP L4 L5... sounds like locations in a parking lot, doesn't it?

Anyway, I like the idea that they play music in the rehab center. I'm supposed to say Physical Therapy Center because rehab sounds like what movie stars and nasty politicians go into when the mess up. But I digress...

They pump in a station called 104.3 FM. Q104.3. Classic rock. The kind of music I used to listen to when it was NEW, not classic, and when I was doing things that could have sent me to rehab back then!

So a couple of classic tunes on at the most appropriate times yesterday. I was really struggling to do these whacky exercises for my back (think of a turtle lying on it's back) and the tune "Knock Knock Knockin' On Heaven's Door" came on. (BOB DYLAN not GUNS N ROSES) Very scary... and then when I got hooked up to the Electro thingy for ice-n-stim, Boston's "More Than A Feeling" came on. Very cool.
My gymnast buddy didn't come today... school trip. So I could go back to old man's pace for the day. I actually think even my hair hurts right now. She'll be there Thursday.
Fell asleep on the massage table. Didn't snore or drool or anything like that. It was all good. Got up very slowly after.
Doesn't matter. I WALKED THE AISLE AT THAT WEDDING.

  1. And just how can you be sure you did not drool while sleeping? Hmmm? Maybe the masseuse slipped nice, dry, sheets/pillow beneath your slobbering mouth before you awoke!

    I love love love listening to music while I am doing almost everything. Okay, even during THAT. Gotta say, though, that I prefer GNR's version of that song over Dylan's. And Boston!!! I remember them!

  8. Funny about the songs...I happen to like that "classic" rock stuff...although...it's like listening to "oldies" that don't feel so much like damn OLDIES.
    I tend to tune into songs a lot myself...timing is everything sometimes.
