Hi everyone, I don't post very often, but read this website almost every day. It's such a comfort to be able to feel less isolated.
I convinced hubby today to try a wheelchair. Although he's still walking, it's quite slow, always holding onto me, and it really tires him out. As a result, we've become very limited in what we can do and tend to be quite home-bound or restricted to short walks in the immediate area.
Hubby really enjoys watching Grand Designs on the telly and wanted to go to the Grand Designs show. I suggested to him that because he gets so tired, we should try a wheelchair just to get around the show and he agreed. I was worried it would be difficult for him to accept and maybe a bit emotional, but it was really great. I think he appreciated that we were able to spend quite a few hours at the show and we ended up having a really nice day out. He's said he's keen to do this again, so now we can finally get out and go visit all those museums and galleries that we haven't been able to do until now
