but his mum is telling him he cant. i know she mneans well as he is recovering and weak, but i am worried dh will become very depressed if stuck inside for much longer. Since dec 14th the only places he has been is home, hospital and his parents place on xmas day and new years day. he really wants to get out and drive somewhere but due to his meds sometimes making him woozey he cant. i need to find my L plates so if that happens i can take over.
Of course he needs to go out, even if only to walk next to you while you push the buggy to the post box! The poor bloke must be going stir-crazy. My dad had heart-surgery in November, and the surgeon said that as part of his recovery he must regularly go out-of-doors after a week had passed and get 'a change of scene'.
He had blood-pressure problems since Christmas, and last week the dr said that it was because he wasn't going for an outdoor walk often enough. He started walking out-of-doors again every day and the bp dropped.
i had to leave him at home with dd2 today as i had to go to hospital to get my blood rpessure checked and they wqere talking about keeping me in. thanks goodness they let me out, i dont know if i could relax knowing dh is still ill and with the kids at home.
anyway, we are planning a short trip out tomorrow, dd1 is sorted for lifts to/from school so it'll just be me, dh and dd2 and we will take it easy. he says he has to get out and about as he is meant to be at a green day gig on monday.
