New Tools

To the right are pictures showing how my life has changed since the accident, including some new tools I get to use:

  • Back Scrubber ($24.50, from the hospital)
  • Grabber (wish I’d invented this)
  • PID (Posture Improvement Device)
  • Sock Sleeve (easy to operate)
  • Shower Shell (very impractical)

I’m thankful for the things I DON’T need:

  • Halo
  • Wheelchair
  • Breathing Tube
  • Oxygen Tank
  • Coffin

Life happens. What we do with it is a daily choice.

  1. I like the reminder of the gratitude for the things you DONT NEED!

    Also chuckled with the reframing of “complaining” to “let’s just call it sharing!”

  2. That sock sleeve is pretty nifty. It must have cost way more than your $24.50 sponge on a stick. We need to get the hospital to shop at the dollar store more often.
