I don't know how you health care pros do it. DH has been home for one day with a broken femur and patella (knee cap). It's 12:30 am and I'm just now sitting down. Please tell me that the first day is the hardest! I'm wiped. We're having the same issues that we were worried would come up with MIL living at home if she became relatively immobile - getting him in the tiny bathrooms is a nightmare. The walker just doesn't fit between the sink and bathtub. So he has to lift the thing over the corner of the bathtub or else scoot sideways. We're going to have to figure this out. This disease is just going to get worse. Uck. I did come up with a clever solution for the dogs though. I lined up the crates and the couch wall to wall with a space in between then put up a gate. So, I've either confined them to the rest of the house or gated off DH. Hard to say but with the 58" TV arriving soon, DH should be comfortable in his play area.
