Some of you may have read about the incentive spirometer I am using for my breathing exercises. When I first started using the IS at the hospital, I was lucky to reach a little over 500 ml. Now I'm reaching between 1750 and 2000. My goal is 2000 so I am getting closer to my goal. Thankfully.
There were a few days that I really felt an ache in my back when I used the IS. I'm not feeling that anymore either so it must be working.
The purpose of the IS is to clear your lungs and improve their functioning. It's intended to help avoid pneumonia.

(It's was Dad's idea to get it for me. Guess he knows what I like to read. hehe)
What's in store for tomorrow? Well, I'm thinking glue and snake skin is up for discussion along with some pictures of our new "pet". Fortunately this pet isn't costing us anything. Stay tuned!
