Thursday I sat on the front step for 15 minutes.  Friday I put on real clothes and went to the store for essentials.  John was doing a wonderful job taking care of me, but he started to go downhill Thursday night and was heading towards misery all day Friday.  Friday was when I took over as caregiver, and I have survived!  Saturday, I attempted (successfully? Ish.) to exercise again because really – it had been over two weeks, and we can’t have that.  Then today I actually went OUTSIDE and saw OTHER PEOPLE and, best of all, RODE A HORSE.  More on that later.

So yeah, I think I’m improving, healthwise.  I’m still congested, and I’m still trying to take it easy, but it’s no longer preventing me from doing normal things.  Mostly.
