My soon-to-be new lift recliner chair

Now, mine won’t be leather, but it’s the same style. It’s electric and has heat and massage. It lifts up like you see in the photo to assist me getting out of the chair. It also reclines and can lift the legs higher than the heart, which will help me get rid of some of the edema in my feet and legs, which has become a serious problem for me. Best of all, the massage motors are ALSO in the lower leg area, which will further assist the fluids in my legs to drain back u into my body where it belongs.Is that great or WHAT?

I ordered it a few weeks ago and am waiting, waiting..it had to be custom built as I am petite and need controls on the left side. I can’t WAIT for this chair to get here!!!!! I am so excited at the prospect of a chair that will help me instead of hurt me. It ¬†will make me more comfortable and not less. It will help relieve some of the pain in my feet too, I think.

Okay, enough about that.

I also got a hospital bed for myself because it is impossible for me to get out of my present bed by myself. The hospital bed should electrically lift up and down from the floor(the whole bed, not just parts) and that will help a lot.

These things were expensive, but I have no insurance and had no choice. I need them now.I put off buying them as long as I could.

Man….this blog is really boring, isn’t it? I don’t know what to do..I feel that I ought to make this..for anybody who is unfortunate enough to be following in my footsteps and wants to know what others do about this or that. So I am doing this but it feels strange and empty somehow.

Well, I will continue anyway.
