Electric bed?

I have been offered an electric bed - not a hospital bed - but like one. It would be a little trouble to go get it and set it up, but not too much. Would it be a good idea to go get it, or just use the wedge pillow and a chair to help get up?

Electric bed?

i had a tah in sept. i really didnt have any problems getting in and out of bed. was of course painful but that is what helped to remind me i was a princess. maybe it wont be a problem getting it and setting it up but remember the taking apart and taking out part. that wont be and certainly shouldnt be a thought in your mind for quite some time. just a funny thought here from my punger years when was scheduled for my tah my wonderful(and i do mean wonderful) mother reminded me of the time when i was about 5 and she had her tah. when she came home from the hospital i was of course overjoyed to see her. her one ? was " how do i get in and out of bed" of course in my little 5 year old mind i very quickly demonstrated the "proper" technique to her. she really got a laugh out of that one when i told her i was scheduled for my tah!! she asked me right away if i remembered the right way to do it. anyway it is a personal preference. but as i said remember the tear down involved and ask if it actually worth it!! hugs and prayers to u. let us know how u did and how u are doing please

Electric bed?

Our regular bed is "electric". Both the feet and back can be raised. It is slightly higher than many beds, so easy to get out of. As I still find sitting on chairs for long periods uncomfortable, and am therefore easily tempted to get up and do things I shouldn't, I've really found our bed inducive to rest. I can adjust it depending on what I'm doing (reading, sleeping, using my computer), adding pillows as needed.
If you can get someone else to install the thing and take it down later for you, I'd go for it! Being comfortable contributes importantly to the speed of a princess's recovery.
On the other hand, if it is too medical looking, it might be depressing to have around when you start feeling better.

Electric bed?

I have an electric bed and love it. I found it very nice after my tah/bso. I can't sleep on my back without pain so I raise the bed at my knees and that helps a lot. I sleep with the head raised just a bit too. I'd go for it if I were you, especially if it's not too much trouble.

Best wishes.
