Therapy doesn’t come on Sunday so I was excited to have a day off. It occurred to me that I probably should begin walking across my kitchen
using my walker since I’m not walking 6 times a night to the bathroom.
I pushed my chair up against the sink and set my walker in front of me. Before this adventure began, I could rock up and grab my walker, steady myself and then walk to the table, turn around and walk back. So, I rocked out of my chair, grabbed my walker and took a step. I was only able to take about 6 steps before I had to have daughter push my chair under my backside so I could sit down. It was surprising how much it tired me out.
I told physical therapy when they came today about my walk and she felt it was a good idea. Even if I could only take a few steps. the next time I should be able to do more and the progress is what we are looking for. Since I’m so tired today, I might wait until tomorrow and try again. We’ll see how it goes.
Physical therapy will help, I hope. I am glad you are making progress and setting new goals. It’s difficult but it will be really beneficial. Go you!
