First shower

Knee-plus-13 days, 12-Oct-2004, Tuesday:
Today was first shower day. With the staples out, I felt very comfortable taking a shower. Ahhh. We had installed a heavy-duty support bar in the first floor shower before my surgery --- this was a good idea.

I added side-steps and backwards-steps across the house to the AHPT routine. These are not yet called for by formal PT, but there are people ahead of me in the process doing these, and it makes sense. The ligaments and tendons that were loosened during surgery need to be strengthened and tightened.
