At 5:30 yesterday morning, as I made my way into the bathroom, I had my first floor smacking fall. Weird thing to me was I had no realization that I was going down. But I knew when the back of my head slammed into the floor. Only obvious damage was a broken fingernail. My ego also took a hit. John pulled his cane out, instructing me to use it.
I startled John several times during the day… when the cane came crashing to the floor. It is even more unstable than I am! This brings me to my Christmas wish list. If I am to use a cane, I’d like it to be a free standing cane instead of a stick I have to lean against things when I’m not pressing it into service. A search of the internet suggests the HurryCane. And while I’m suggesting to my children… can it be a light color? Not black or dark brown?
