So yesterday afternoon as I am cuddled on my couch with a good Sex and the City episode I get a phone call....It was from a lady who my mom has been talking to about possibly getting me to start working out and getting ready for when I get my transplant call.
**We have been working on this for awhile since we know the stronger you are going in for transplant the more likely you are to have a quicker recovery or at least be better off than somebody who didn't move at all before there surgery. But there is no way I have the energy to go to a gym 2-3 times per week to work out so we have been looking for places that will come to me...that way if I need my oxygen I am at home and will feel comfortable enough to use it.**
So anyway back to yesterday...I get a call from a very nice lady (now I didn't know we had actually found a place and that they were going to call me) and she wanted to set up an appointment to come and "meet" me. So we set it up for Thursday afternoon and I went back to my regularly scheduled programming!
Today, I got a call from Stacie (work out lady) and she had a cancellation and wanted to know if she could come today instead of tomorrow, which was fine because I was just at home working and I didn't have any plans of leaving.
So at 12:00 and to my surprise I answer the door to a lady with a work out bag and weights! My first reaction was..."we aren't actually gonna work out today are we??!!" I thought we were just gonna talk and maybe sign a few papers...she had other plans!
So today was my first "mini" session. I did a warm-up and only one round of all the exercises. She is coming monday and wednesday of next week so hopefully I do better!
At first, after she left I felt kind of jello-e (you know that I just worked out for the first time in a LONG time feeling) but I have to say I actually felt really good for the rest of the day so this might be a good thing for me.....we will see after next week...or worse tomorrow when we see just how bad my body will reject any kind of manual labor!! :)
