Great day today

I got up this morning took all of my meds and packed my portable oxygen and drove over to my daughter's. I don't see my daughter often as she lives on the top floor of her building which is 3 flights of stairs. Needless to say I get a little anxious. I promised my grandson I would come. When I arrived I called my daughter to come down and help. She did. She carried my oxygen and trooped on up the stairs stopped for a moment on second flight and then up to last flight she plugged me in and I took a couple of minutes to recover and stayed for about four hours. Stopped and got husband lunch and rested most of day. Really feel like I am getting stronger.

Good for you. Stairs are a problem for me usually! Visited Ikea in Cov recently! Lifts were a nightmare wait! Daughter decided we should try 3 flights of stairs! By 2nd flight my heart was pounding so hard I felt faint. Took time out! Did 3rd set!!! Was so proud of myself! Daft but I hadn't done stairs in ages! Will keep trying!!!!

Breathe easy all!!!

I may have started something now. My youngest wants me to see a nutritionist now that I have started exercising and no longer have any form of nicotine in my body.
