stairs or no stairs

I was worried about the same thing. 3 steps into the townhouse and the bedroom is on the 2nd floor. Fortunately, so is the bathroom and the computer. I made the steps when I got home after surgery, I just took them slowly. After that, I took snack packs and a big glass of water up there for when I woke at night hungery or thirsty so I wouldn't have to wake DH. I made one trip down and up in the morning, and one at night the first few days home. After that, I just planned my trips to minimize the number of times I had to climb. By 3 weeks, I realized I was almost back to my normal routine on the stairs. Just keep taking them slowly and you'll be fine.
