Kevin and I have been walking 3 miles everyday. He wanted to walk my running route yesterday with lots of hills. He did fine, but his calves didn't. He can feel his muscles work so hard as they try to build. He is doing wonderful. I know now why they have heart patients stay in the area for a month or so. It's to watch for rejection, but also to force them to rest. Kevin wants to do so much, but knows when he needs to stop and rest. He is still limited and I know that it is a little frustrating to him that I need to do things that he can't yet or ever do. I really don't mind. I've have a new outlook on life. I like where I am right now and hope that I don't go back to my "hurry and get it done" phase. I'm discovering more about enjoying the moment. Sounds cliche, I know, but I don't know any other way of describing it. Our life together has changed too, and we love that.
Tomorrow we will celebrate Rebecca's 20th birthday - dinner, cakes, and presents in the making. We will have a relaxing, calm, birthday celebration.
