Recently my health has taken a turn for the worse. I spent all of October in the hospital, and have been mostly bedridden since. However, I have gotten clearance to be up and about for short periods of time (and hour or two), and permission to drive, as long as I am not on my pain medication. I feel well enough to forgo such medications, and am hoping to get out of the house a bit and bird. I am currently permanently attached to a wound VAC, and my muscles have atrophied during my convalescence, so my mobility is a bit limited. Short walks would be fine, say 100 yards on level ground, but certainly not a thorough hike. Any suggestions as to where I might go? I am currently staying out in Summerplace (around 148th and Halsey).
