The things we take for granted until we don’t have them – walking, getting in and out of bed,¬†bowel movements.

When you’re bedridden, the extent of exercise consists of getting in and out of bed, especially when you’ve been given a narcotic to mask the pain, it’s decently serious.

Having a daily routine that can not be performed, well, it quickly becomes a major issue. Thank goodness for the second bottle.

Second day of recovery, went for a 200 meter walk (end of street and back). I asked Cheryl, “Have you ever seen me walk this slow”. She smiled and half-laughed, “No!”.

Insight: The hard work of exercise is worth every invisible, non-obvious, taken-for-granted benefit it provides.
