Wheelie Wednesday Physical Therapy

Hector here!

I am alarmed to learn that some humans have been finding, gasp, humor, in my misfortune. Shame on you! I also found out that Mango's pal, Joe Stains nominated my misadventure for post of the month which is great because I hope it serves as a public service announcement for any wheelies considering agility.

I am recovering very quickly from the agility injuries. Today I started my physical therapy. Momma was kind enough to take me in the mastiff mobile and this is my first trip ever! I was quite juiced up. Here we go!
The first thing they did was to remove my casts.

OK, that's a relief.


Next up, weight training...

Being myself, I guess the first weight I selected was a bit too heavy.


I'll work up to that. This one is more manageable right now.Then, on to the stability ball to get all my wheelie muscles working together again. You can't see it, but my abs are getting quite the workout.That was really exhausting! Fortunately, the next thing on the agenda was a soothing massages.Then something called acupuncture. It looks like it might hurt, but it actually felt kind of good.To top it all off, thirty minutes in the whirlpool.A few more trips and I should be back to my old self.

Hector Wheelie! Over and out!

Hector, sorry to be having laughs at your expense, but I had physical therapy today too and there were no massages or whirlpool to be had, just PAIN!

(And I go in tomorrow for surgery on my other shoulder, I! CAN'T! WAIT!)

Hector,
I gotta ask: What is the name of your physical therapist?? Looks like he is a first class type of guy! Safety pins and all!!

That therapy stuff looks worse than the actual injury.

Hector!
You're looking a lot better my man! I bet Mango could teach you the art of resting and napping so you can build up your strength and get back to your old self!

Slurp!

Okay. Now I've just got to say it. You actually made my girl pee her pants because she is, GASP, finding humor in your situation now that she knows you're going to be okay.
