My daughter is packing because she’s leaving today not tomorrow. My aide of three years had her last day with me yesterday. My new aide starts Monday and is working 11-7. Not exactly the hours I wanted to change them too but it is still is better than my original hours. I can now do my normal morning routine. I prefer working out when no one is around. I always did. Now I’ll have the morning to myself. What could go wrong?
Well today, I may have worked out a touch too long and was more tired than I realized. I went to transfer from my wheelchair to my comfy chair and it didn’t go so smoothly. I ended up misstepping and slide to the floor. Once there I couldn’t get myself myself back up. Great!!! Not a good sign for proving my point I’ll be fine on my own in the morning. Mikayla was still home and was helping me but I was spent on my energy level.
Then I had a genius idea. I got my knee on the kick plate of my wheelchair and threw my body over the seat. I used the chair’s lift feature that makes the chair go up and down. I was able to get myself into a standing position. Genius!!!! A game changer. Ok granted my body was in a super spasm when I finally was standing. The point was I WAS standing. Hopefully this won’t occur often because than I will have an issue but it was a great solution especially if I am alone.
