Building Endurance

It is amazing how quickly a week of bedrest just zaps you of all your energy.

As I watch my son try to function, I remember back to my experience with trying to rebuild my endurance! I had spent a week in the hospital, shortly after graduating from nursing school. It was just before Christmas, and my unscheduled time away had left me behind. I decided we would simply swing by the mall on our way home from the hospital. I'd had plenty of time to figure out my list.

One problem: By the time I'd walked from the car to the mall, I was exhausted. I sat in the food court and my friend finished my shopping for me.

With that in mind, I watch my son. I have one more day to try to figure out what the best approach should be for school on Monday.
