Have been told I have to have my feet up for a few hours a day due to the swelling ankles, I didn't find it comfortable sitting with my feet on a stool and didn't fancy sitting on the bed during the day. I can't afford one of those lovely reclining chairs nor do I have the room for one so I told my grey matter to get on it's bike and come up with an idea which it did. I have now ordered a nice reclining garden chair with a rising foot rest. I can use this all evening and fold it up and put it in the bedroom during the day. Result I hope!
