Another Week in Paradise day 2.1: morning routine

AWP day 2 .2; morning routine, hoisted talking my computer with a that it yet Jimmy how high they are thank you arm eternal bachelor gearleverfrom bed into commode (usually not as dressed as in this photobut there are some things you do not need to see!). Toileted (again with processes that you probably don’t want to know about), showered, hoisted back into bed and dressed. Hoisted into wheelchair and off to breakfast at the beginning of a day. Long process, about 2 1/2 hours – but I think time can be reduced out-of-hospital.
