If you are thinking of buying one for Shrek, as you know, Medicare will pay for 80%. I would be lost without mine.

He will need a front wheeled walker first and for as long as possible. No elevator in our place for a scooter.

Keep Shrek walking and climbing those stairs as long as you can!

If I can think of one good thing about your recent surgery it is that it has gotten Shrek moving and thinking about new things. Now that his routine has been shaken up keep him moving!

I'm working on it. Walking out of the hospital yesterday with the CNA, guess who was lagging behind, I should have had Shrek push me in a wheelchair. I was outpacing him with an IV stand at one point. I finally started waiting until he went home before I would go for a walk.

It's going to be interesting to see if I can get him moving along with me in the next month.

My M-I-L sent me a bunch of "Meanwhile in Canada" pix. This one seems appropriate here.

A lot of the resident in this building are using the walker that has the seat on it. It has been improved a great deal.

I can walk very normal. It is just that after about three minutes of walking, my hip and spine start to hurt. It is a circulation problem. So all I have to do is stop and sit down for a few minutes for the pain to subside. And I can't stand for more than ten minutes. Fortunately, in this building we do have an elevator.

We went out to buy "a couple of items at the store" and a new monitor for me. We came home with $200 worth of groceries, a monitor, 2 sets of speakers, keyboards and mice ... the two CPU's will be ready on Friday!

We seem to shop better separately because we worry what the other will think. Together we have no willpower.

WTG LP. There's nothing better than new "house toys"
