MrsK: That is great. No matter how tired he is feeling keep him moving
I thought I wanted to hurt my dad when I got back from a week out of the hospital but he made me walk at least an hour every day (sams club, walmart, home depot ect). I used the shopping cart for support until I could use my cane only. I would then be allowed to take a nap in the afternoon "washed out"
Then I went to a personal trainer 3x a week for 30 min. DRANK A LOT OF WATER. Milk tasted like heaven to me. I had my own jug to chug on.
Side effect from steriods: metallic taste in mouth.. cured with jolly ranchers.
I think i also had memory problems. Im not sure if it was from steriods of from the anxiety of being diagnosed.
