The Entourage

25 Feb

Yesterday Mom managed to walk twice around the unit using the walker, a staff member pushing her IV pole and one holding onto her safety strap, plus me walking beside her. It makes quite the entourage.  You don’t want to meet anyone else walking the opposite way!

The effort Mom has to put in to that short walk and how she pushes herself is inspiring. She is in pain, yet knows that unless she walks around that she will not get better. So off she goes. I have avoided ever working that hard physically. If it hurts I stop! But if Mom can push herself, so can I. Stairs, here I come!
