    Oh dear. I hope that your broken fibula heals quickly. I've fallen twice at home since I got out of hospital. It's very difficult to get up and takes ages but so far doable with my husbands help. No serious damage done, but hurts like hell getting into position to get up, and getting up. It squashes my operation wound. Lynne

    Hello BN,

    Sorry to hear about your fall. That must have been very painful, and I hope you didn't have to wait long for an ambulance this time.

    Hopefully, you are being looked after very well in hospital.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Oh BN... That's so awful!

    It is so easy to fall and the consequences are upsetting both mentally and physically. I really hope you are getting good care in hospital. Sending you a virtual hug.

    Love Debbie x

    You are having such a rough time BN ...I really hope you get some things in place to help you
    soon and that the MND team have some ideas to keep you safe.

    I have had the physio and OT ( twice ) to my home this week as I have been struggling recently and they had suggestions and ideas to make life easier that I had not thought of.

    I really hope you have a comfortable evening.
    Love Debbie x

    Hi BN,

    It's good to hear that you are back home, after your stay in hospital following your fall. I hope you ok and that you are making a good recovery.

    I agree about the memory foam - it might have been a good friend in the past, but it's definitely not my best friend now!

    Hopefully your appointment in Oxford went well yesterday and arrangements have been made for you to receive the support you need.

    Best wishes

    Hi BN. I hope that your rise and recline chair can be reupholstered and the memory foam taken out. I bought an IKEA top of the range memory foam mattress topper and was very disappointed about it. If you lay in the same position for a while and then try to turn its near impossible and even if I managed it I was left lying on bumps caused by the previous position. What a stupid invention. I got my hubby to take off the offending topper and ordered a Silent Night Max-Air bed topper, about a third of the price of the Ikea one. The reviews state make a mattress that too hard comfy. Just what I want. We've been using an old topper that doesn't offer much comfort, but the new one arrived this morning so I'm looking forward to the first good night's sleep since we moved to this flat with the IKEA bed in November. One has to think positive.

    About rise and recline chairs. Mine is on order. I did not choose memory foam. I'm relieved about that now. The cushioning on the demo chair that Oak Tree Mobility brought was very comfy anyway. In fact it was the first chair that I've sat on in about 38 years that I haven't had to use a cushion for my back support. I've had severe back trouble that long. I look forward to getting it.

    Good luck with getting your chair and any other unhelpful equipment sorted out or replaced. Lynne
