Heather has a new Physical Therapist, Terry, who is awesome. (Heather had her hip replaced on the 17th). PT Terry (HA!) came over yesterday to work with Heather. She asked if Heather was using ice packs--if you recall, Heather's stupid fridge has the insanely hot center bar--and the ice maker has since stopped working. Terry told Heather an awesome life hack that after 30 years of PT, she came up with. Take half a bottle of Dawn Dishwashing liquid. (Terry says Dawn specifically--she tried lots of other brands but they all have too much water diluting them, and so they freeze solid) Pour that half-bottle of Dawn into a gallon ziploc bag. Get all the air out. Seal it. Bag it a second time, and get all the air out. Freeze it flat, and when you need an ice pack this one conforms easily to your body--just like an expensive gel pack you would buy at the drug store! SO COOL!! It is great for all families--if your kids do not want an ICE pack--sometimes it is too cold, put this in a pillowcase and put it on the injured area--it works GREAT!!
