Proud Owner Of A New Ramp, My Back Is At It Again
We finally broke down and added a ramp to the side porch, I'm spending more time in the wheelchair, figured it was time to get it in the house? The brother came and built the ramp, enlarged the patio at the end to give me plenty of maneuvering space as well. A friend from high school came and did the railing with his wife, thanks to them. Imagine my surprise when I wheeled up and the chair didn't fit through the door! Luckily another friend had a chair for sale that did, thanks to him. Last obstacle are the 4 steps up to the bedrooms and baths, sure we will be able to tackle that one too. Thanks to everyone that helped, George Bailey has nothing on me!
The time I spent down waiting for back surgery all but finished my legs, not much get up and go left in them. Think of how ticked off I was a couple of days ago when I got in the shower, turned to close the curtain and found myself laying on the floor! This last surgery lasted about 3 months or so, same problem is back with a vengeance. Now we have to decide what to do? I can manage the pain I'm tempted to do nothing, surrender to the chair full time, it's coming anyway. At what time are you excepting the inevitable or giving up?
