Ideas

The first two weeks were brutal - even trying to rise from the toilet hurt. Sis brought a commode which helped so much - it fits over the toilet and is higher so the arm didnt pull as much to get up.

Also, she brought a picker upper gadget as leaner forward or bending over was agony.

I used safety pins to clip the ends of a hand towel so I could rub between my fingers to dry them.

Got my hair clipped off so could just let it dry naturally - I miss pinning it up but when I can reach up my hair will have grown enough again.

Sis loaned me some lovely clothes and I bought slacks a couple sizes larger so they were easier to pull up.

Oh Jean, like you needed this. Those uncastable fractures are the worst. Hope you heal quickly.

Oh Jean, bless your heart, you've been through a lot. It sounds like you and your sis have been so smart in finding ways to 'get by'...

I'm praying that you heal quickly and completely!

Love and prayers,
