I sat down for the first time today.
I’ve been in bed all day yesterday. Physical therapy wants me to be as active as possible. They held the tubes and lines so I could walk without anything in my way.
I was sweating so much that I’m glad to be off the bed. What I didn’t expect was how sore I was. I swear, I had the flexibility as the tin man.
My heart is horrible. My heart suffered at this tiny shred of exercise. When I was helped up, my heart was all THUD, THUD, THUD. It did not like this.
It was so painful getting up. My heart and soreness combined with my anxiety of tripping over the wires and having all the IVs pulled out of me was awful. Once I was on the chair, I was okay.
Turns out I sweat a lot on the chair too! As soon as I sat down, I immediately felt hot.
Well, at least I’m progressing fast. I got my breathing tube removed and I had my first physical therapy session today.
