You shall walk and not faint.

I figured it was time for a little health update. I am feeling great, seriously great.
When we went away for our staycation weekend I walked all over the place. I've gained almost 10 pounds which helps.
I am vertical more often and I have even started "working out" on my grand people pedals.
I'm up to 30 minutes.
Thanks to new Dr's and drug protocol I am making progress.

I still require lots of sleep and need to stay hydrated but I haven't landed on my butt in months.
I am able to go on outings and make dinner...if you count heating stuff up in the oven which I totally do.
We did bring the wheelchair for a stroll down the boardwalk.
It feels so good to feel good.

I had noticed that there were no wheelchair pics on your vacay post. That is such great news. Now, don't overdo it.

Guess what? I gained about ten pounds too. I'm not nearly as thrilled! If I lose it, again, do you want it?
