Much improvement! I'm cooking and doing laundry and other light chores. Going up and down stairs (carefully) and no longer need to sit down to shower nor to use a cane. I do use a stick on the uneven terrain outside but I've done that for years.
And I drove to the store on Monday! Pushed the buggy up and down aisles at a good clip! And when I got home, I carried two big bags of groceries up the steps. (John brought the rest. He had accompanied me in case I got too tired but I just felt energized!)
By the time I put the groceries away, however, I was feeling a tad weary. And all day Tuesday I was as stiff and creaky as if I'd been hoeing corn or some other tiring exercise. Too much irrational exuberance in the grocery store.
However. It's a start. I'm back on the road! Though, as a kind friend here or on Facebook reminded me, it's probably time to put aside that dream of playing in the NFL...
