Shower chair

Hi, Leah: I couldn't find a shower chair. I got one of our plastic outdoor picnic chairs (the white or green ones) and used it for my first 2 showers. In the hospital, they gave me a vinyl waffle pad to make sitting comfortable; I put that on the chair and it was great. You could use a donut pad, or a plastic pillow, too. I found a hand held shower at a sale (the round ones on the end of a white hose) and it made showering easy. The regular shower head unscrews and you screw the end of the hand held one right on the same threads. After 2 showers, I was standing most of the time anyway, and I took out the chair. It's just that you feel a little weak after surgery, but that goes away quickly. s to you!! Jeanne

Kids to help or not??

My girls are 6 and 9 and they have been such wondeful helpers for me. When Daddy is working, my 9 year old makes grits or waffles for us girls, my 6 year old makes the toast and feeds the dog and they both get my coffee together...(microwaves are wonderful!)
I think this has helped them through my surgery and recovery.
I am glad you have older children who can help do more. That is a blessing!
Big Hugs!!
