Fortunately, the physical therapists at the hospital had me try one before I left. It is SO much easier to get around on than crutches or a walker. It turns out that insurance doesn't pay for these, so I might as well have ordered it from Amazon before I went into the hospital. The P.T. told me it would cost twice as much if she ordered it for me through a medical supply store. Anyway, I have it now. I can get myself to the kitchen table for meals and sit in the family room for some variety. I had to use the walker they sent me home with until the scooter arrived. That walker was painful on my hands! I do still need it to get in and out of the shower though, so it can stay.
How do you like my new blog design by Linda, My Fairy Blogmother? I thought that this would be a good project to work on while laid up. Linda made it so easy that I should have done it sooner!
