Swimming

So I know I have not posted in a bit... as Matt keeps reminding me! I don't know, just haven't had much new to say!

Today however, I took an important step in trying to maintain what lung function that I have. I went down to our community recreation center down the road and bought a 3 month pass to the pool/fitness center. Then I went "swimming" today. Okay, I really don't lap swim, but I did move around in the water, made my lungs and muscles work, and got a very productive cough. I'm going to try to go often, as I like moving in water, it's great for improving lung function, and I paid for it so I should use it!

I know exactly what you mean. I used to do that a lot in college when I had free access to the pool at the Student Development Complex. I'd kind of push my self around while floating on one of those funoodles. That way I'd get the physical activity, but but it wasn't as hard as actually swimming since i had some support from the funoodle. Haven't done that in a while those. PICC lines don't mix well with swimming.
