Start of year 2020
Well not exactly how I was thinking of starting the year but I guess the only good thing it it can only get better form here.
I’m getting stronger every day now slowly but surely I’m going to get back what I lost, this has been a valuable experience for me it has shown me that you can’t take things for granted, if you want to maintain a good level of fitness as you get older you have to make some sacrifices, also I have to remember I’m at a disadvantage to begin with, my COPD & asthma give me a handicap so I have to take extra care of myself during the winter months, making sure I feed my body good nutrition get adequate exercise along with a good amount of sleep to replenish my energy.
The other factors are of course trying to avoid going to places where there’s likely to be a higher risk of contracting any type of virus or infections as this will result in my contracting Pneumonia again and each time this happens I put myself at greater risk of damaging my lungs more, and this could prove to be fatal, and I really don’t want this to happen as I have lots of adventures I need to fulfill yet.
As you can see from my photo I’m off the CPAP & 02 so thing’s are definitely going the right way, I’m feeling whole lot better today than I have for a long time.
I’d like to see a big thank you to all my family and friends for all the help and support you have given me, all the online get well wishes from friends around the world I really appreciate you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The only way is up from here on so keep watching this space for my next update, hopefully new road trips in the not to distance future starting with a few in the UK, so looking forward to getting back in my van again…🙏
