Sunday, July 20th – Haven’t updated since the fatigue hit – leaving Moscow this morning.

IMG_0561Apologies in advance.  So many things have happened at this amazing hospital.
Once the fatigue set in, I had to rest so much more.  Lots of photos to come, lots of wonderful patients as well.
Marian and ‘Robert arrived yesterday.  They were here to witness and enjoy a new life celebration!

Yesterday, was Saturday, July 19th.  Dr. Fedorenko gave me all the testing  results, as well as MRI”s and discharge instructions. He was thorough, as usual and answered all my questions.
Afterwards, Marian, Robert and I went to a local grocery store and Robert pushed me in a transport wheelchair.  It was too far for me to walk using my rollator.  Once we were back on the hospital grounds, I  decided I would walk for a bit, pushing the wheel chair  for balance and stability  I walked really slow, but  I continued  for a for about 1/2 hr and it felt so good!  It was the first time I had ventured outside for almost one week.

Once inside the hospital entrance with my four ‘favorite’ stairs, Robert carried the wheelchair up the stairs.  I decided to walk while holding the railing.  It was not difficult at all.  There was a full flight of stairs that I’d never attempted before.  Marian was nearby, but I did not require her assistance.  I continued to easily climb the stairs.
So, I went up one more flight of stairs!  Hip flexors and quads cooperated and I thrilled I had even attempting the stairs!

I feel ready to go home to Bethany where we have lots of stairs : )
