you include the items "cane" and "grabber" on your Christmas list! :))(

I'm totally OK with it, not trying to be negative. Those are two things a really needed, so I thought "what the heck?", might as well ask for it. I had a grabber that I used so much that it broke. :)

And when I would go on short jaunts with the family, and come back soooo miserable, I thought to myself "what other than an electric scooter chair could I use to help?". The cane has come in sooooo handy!

Any way, just want to wish you all a Happy New Year!

Take care and lots of love!!!

  • That's funny, sad and true :O)

    I already have been through 2 grabbers working on #3. I have used a cane on and off for years.

    The new needs for me were the adjustable lab top table and wireless keyboard and Santa was kind enough to bring them.

    I am thinking having 2-3 grabbers placed about the house would be good or better yet figure out a way to have a grabber/cane combo? Could be a money maker.

  • I would love a "combo" grabber/walker. That would be great!

  • My dad got me one the day I was released from my microD surgery. I laughed and said thanks. He had one when he had a partial hip replacement and said he still uses it when he drops things behind the desk or fridge.

    Anyhow, little did I know how awesome it is. It's amazing how much I drop stuff and never realized it. And, considering I'm headed back for surgery, I'm glad I have it.
