Today I drove for the first time since I got home from the hospital. The last time I drove was when I took myself to the hospital for my right heart catheterization… seems like forever ago.
Showering is like exercise to me; when I’m done I’m exhausted. This evening I took a shower and realized that it’s finally a little easier to shower than when I had PH. The ease of walking came much more quickly for some reason. While I’m on the topic, I must say I love my shower chair. I think even after I’m all better I’m going to keep it in the tub for the convenience of it.
It may take me a long time and I may feel like I just ran a marathon, but I think I am now physically capable of doing everything independently if I needed to. Now it’s just a matter of building up the endurance and muscles to sustain.
