Well, it’s been a little over 9 days since I was discharged from the hospital and it’s great to be at home.
We’ve had our first post-hospital meeting with the doctor which went well with no concerns. On the good news front he indicated that swimming in the lake would be “OK”. I didn’t tell him I was going to do it anyway, but now I’ll take less flack, which is good. The usual blood work was done and things are recovering slowly. My white blood cell count and hemoglobin are still very low which accounts for the fatigue.
On the 2nd day at home a 1km walk around the block did me in. A few days later a slow and easy 9.5km bike ride was the max. A few days later a 20km ride followed by a 22km ride. Still going slow and wondering when 30km/hr will be the normal minimal pace.
I can usually manage doing some stuff in the morning and early afternoon and then spending the rest of the day recovering. Yesterday, I took the car in for servicing and walked a lot wandering around Lowes waiting for it to be completed. Then in the afternoon I managed to clean the inside of the car and then it was nap time.
All in all I’m doing very well and looking forward to heading out to the lake tomorrow to be with all the family.
