Did not realize I was still so weak after 3 weeks, being weary of waiting until someone made a visit
because it is Sunday and missing my New York Times that is thrown into the long drive - I decided
to go retrieve it this morning.
Down the stairs to where car is parked I go, careful, get into the car, open garage door and back out, all is fine. It seems so good to drive slowly down the long drive. Difficult to pick up the paper, take the cane and leaning outdoor drag it closer to door, holding on to steering wheel able to pick it up and place in the car, I back into the field and turn the car around and head for the house. So pleased but now going back upstairs holding rails and holding the paper is very tiring. Finally inside and grab inside walker and so thankful. I did not realize it would be so tiring for me.
Pleased it is over and I am safely back inside and later today for the first time since the home will look at my paper.
