    glad to hear she is doing well. sending healing energy your way. just tell her "one day at a time". my best friend had a major heart attack and she walked a little more each day. even if it is one or two steps. great of you to be there for her.

    Dawn... great news! Walking is important. Will take some time to build up stamina, but she should keep with it. Glad it's going well.

    Dawn - so glad to hear that she is doing well after her surgery. As a 'veteran' of many surgeries, let her go very slowly. She probably felt really good the last day or so in the hospital, but being home is TOTALLY different. I would be up and around and visiting and doing lots of stuff at the hospital, go home and the first full day was awful. I have never felt as tired as the first full day at home after being in the hospital.

    As stated above - keep her moving. Slow, steady and consistent. One more step each day. One more up/down than before. When I had both of my knees replaced in the same surgery I worked my butt off - rehab and otherwise. Push her/yourself a little each time. But when she is tired she has to rest. The PT told me that you need as much rest time as activity time at the beginning.

    Blessing and prayers to you both. How wonderful that you are there for her.

    Enjoy your walks together. So sweet, I can just see the two sisters walking arm-in-arm down the street.
