  •  Thank you for your update (7+ / 0-)

    I was thinking of both of you this afternoon and wondering how things were going. I am glad Leaves will be able to come home soon. Much love to both of you.

    One comment on hospital beds. Hospital beds are better than  regular beds, but if you have limited mobility, getting out of the hospital bed can still be difficult. Ask for the “trapeze”. It is a metal triangle on a chain that hangs from a frame that is bolted to the bed. The trapeze gives the occupant of the bed something to grab onto while repositioning themselves or getting out of the bed.

    You might need Leaves’ doctor to “prescribe” a trapeze. The middle photo on this web page shows a standard trapeze: Hospital Bed Trapeze
