Zoe: Small steps

Sonny left his room today to whoops of encouragement from me and the nurses. He didn't go far, just to the IV medication room opposite his cubicle door and back but the courage and strength it took from him was amazing. Afterwards, he said his legs felt like dust. As well as having to deal with the effects of chemo he is also having to rebuild himself after spending the last six weeks in bed as a result of the various infections he's been fighting. He finds the weakness in himself terrifying and the physio required to build himself back up daunting and exhausting. I'm watching his efforts bursting with the simple pleasure of watching him move again.
