I am learning….


  • Sit upright in a high chair with arm rests.
  • Avoid low chairs.
  • Use a sock aid to put on stockings.
  • Use a long handled shoe horn to put on my shoes.
  • Not to pivot on my  leg when walking or allow my leg to rotate out or in excessively.
  • Remember NOT to cross my legs while sitting or lying in bed (wonder if I can do it while fibbing?).
  • Have one way traffic in bed – get in and out of bed on the side of the hip to be operated on.
  • Use a pillow between my legs in bed to keep my new hip in the correct position (do you think I could get away with substituting a toyboy?).

Any takers for my sandals….
