After DH's surgery in June he walked around a few times but not as much as I thought he should, especially since the weather has been clear & sunny every day.

That's great Susanne, hopefully with all the support he's getting he'll walk more often.

I think he's determined to walk every other day as long as the weather holds out. He went from a walk again this morning around town. He has a big incentive. He wants to march in the 4th of July parade next year. This year he had to ride on a float so he'd determined to walk to the entire parade route in July.

Wow that sure is a goal. Good for him. I guess the challenge will be the wint hitting and not so early to get out so figuring out something inside to keep up his mobility. I am sure he is motivated and up to it. Nice to hear good news. Nice for you too.

Sometimes a person has to get to *that* point before they start doing what they know needs to be done.

He was out walking agaiin this afternoon. Thinks he's probably up to about a mile & a half now and moving a lot faster.
