Baby steps are still steps...

Today I took a rather large step and went back to work. Granted, I didn't work with patients, and just sat at my desk catching up on paperwork, but I did it and it felt great.

Getting up this morning was a little rough and I was afraid it was going to be too much. But then again, any morning lung wise for me is the worst time of day. So I took my time and crept along at a snails pace and got to work.

It was so great to see everyone and was even a little bit emotional. This flu and virus stuff really knocked me down to the lowest I've ever felt. I think the fact that I even got in the SUV and drove today was monumental.

Overall I'm tired, but don't regret it at all. The doctor's cleared me today to go back at light duty and I'll do just that. Hoping that each day only gets easier from here on out. I still have a long way to go, but I'll take these baby steps for sure.

Now on to doing a whole lot of nothing for the rest of the day and night.

Glad you are better and are able to get back to work...I'm sure that feels good! Hoping and praying you continue to feel better and gain your energy/strength back.
