Axel is five days old at this point and everything is going extremely well. We were able to go home from the hospital the day after he was born and we’ve been doing lots since then including doctor visits, birthday parties, Easter egg hunts, trips to the playground and a few walks.
I was able to get out for a walk up our road after two days which was so nice for me both as a mental and physical release. Although I only had time for about a half hour, it was nice to go uphill and exert some energy after about four days of rest. Yesterday, my mom and I took Axel for his first walk and we enjoyed a nice three mile loop through the neighborhood at the bottom of our road. I’m so thankful he already loves the sling and can’t wait to get him in the Chariot for his first run.
Although I have not been out for a run or ride yet, I am itching to. My body feels ready and my mind is definitely ready but I’m trying to wait at least a week. I think I’ll make it at this point especially if I can continue to get out for either a walk or a hike the next few days.
