    I like the rollator , Its made by DRIVE.
    I am calling it C3PO , since I call the W/C R2D2 :)

    TOday was the first day after cataract surgery one eye that I was allowed back in the pool. It felt good especially since it was 80F outside and the pool was 84. I was pretty stiffened during and after, but felt courageous and great.

    I swam my 20 minutes, 603 yards. No spasms.

    I realize I could die in the pool, but this disease is a living death anyway...and, I am not reckless.

    You're talking about your at-home pool? Do you mean that you could die there because there'd be no one around (lifeguard, other swimmers) to come to your aid in an emergency?

    I'm trying to stifle my inner hen here but can't help wondering. If you started to have a problem while in the pool, would you be able to summon help?

    I have a DRIVE rollator too and so far have had no problems with it whatsoever. I've had it a couple of years now. Easy to assemble, easy to fold up, not too heavy and it doesn't take up too much space.

    I call my DH at work and he starts a timer. If he doesn’t hear from me in 45 minutes he knows to send out the Calvary. I also keep my phone by the pool where I can reach it, if I can get to that end of the pool.

    Swimming rescues my mental health. And its the only exercise I can tolerate. SPS typically has exercise as a trigger for a spasm.

    It would be scary if it happens. ..

    I swam 20 minutes , 603 yards. Spent th rest of the day getting ready for IVIG tomorrow, cooking supper, shopping at grocery store at 7am before the crowd, preparing history and list for GI visit and Urologist visit at end of week.

    Its daunting...

    Sunshine, yes it is daunting, but at least you are still in the pool. Good for you for taking safe guards. Was glad to read this.

    We all should have known you're no dummy, Sunshine! It's good to know you have a system set up--just in case.

    My recent step counts:

    2/11/19 - 1171 steps
    2/12/19 - 1222 "
    2/13/19 - 1123 "
    2/14/19 - 1195 "
    2/15/19 - 1210 "
    2/16/19 - 1200 "
    2/17/19 - 849 "

    I put a lamp together yesterday--a bit of extra exertion involved there, and the other day I actually cleaned the refrigerator door. Next I'll do the main part of the refrigerator and move on to the freezer--those are jobs for two other days, probably.
