I probably could get to the local Y on a weekend. Would just walking laps in a pool be enough, or replicating the land exercises the PT gives me at home in the water? I've always been a terrible swimmer.
Yes, Rod does want me to get better. And, I'm pretty sure he would be happy to see me get to a pool. But, I think that it is kind of easy for him to discount how much I am struggling because I am still able to contribute, even with this level of disabilty, so much around the house. Though, it has been harder of late. Even driving was tougher yesterday. My leg felt like 50 pounds moving it from the gas to the brake.
