Progress in the Physical Therapy department:
I was able to carry a load of laundry up from the basement without excessive pain. I think that's the first time since BEFORE I re-injured the knee in July that I can say that.
Actually, I'm not even sure when the last time was that carrying laundry up or down the stairs wasn't an ordeal. So getting that done today and having no negative aftereffects is a nice little milestone. :)
