    H how awful for you. Did the GP give you any exercises to do (mind you, you'd need someone on hand for safety) or what did he/she say when prescribing the anti nausea meds?

    You can't go on feeling so poorly ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Big hug and kiss.

    Love Ellie.

    Oh thanks everyone I shall have to tempt him with something. I'm either going to pull his arms off or we will both end up on the floor. ๐Ÿค—

    Thanks for the link, due to complicated reasons, we can't get a riser chair yet. These are helpful.

    denise If you're raising the chair height with wood or blocks etc., just make sure it's very stable with no wobbling if weight put on an armrest, for example.

    Best would be a riser recliner armchair but maybe one of those cushion gizmos Gary found would be good for now (providing Stephen isn't unbalanced by the rising action)

    Good luck.

    Love Ellie.

    GaryM If the link is to a genuinely appropriate and in-context product, I think that's OK. Thanks for sharing your find ๐Ÿ‘

    Denise - yes, extra height will help.

    Thanks Jacqij.

    Yes, getting up from anything is the problem now!

    Hi Doug, sorry to hear about your fall I hope you are recovering well. I too have the same chair which I find comfortable, although getting up from it for me is becoming an issue. Take care and try to keep safe

    No Lynne, it's quite safe. And the arms aid safety.

    Sorry about your fall Doug. I hope that you didnโ€™t hurt much anywhere.

    Your new shower and loo chair looks great. Iโ€™ll have to have one soon. Doesnโ€™t that plastic covered seat get slippy when wet?

    Love Lynne

    Thanks Mary.

    Yes, the shower chair is helpful both with the loo and for washing in. I had a normal raised seat which needed to be removed.

    May I ask the make and model of the higher chair youโ€™d like to have?

    The problem with the fall and minor knee injury is that it has trapped me in bed for nearly a week.

    Doug
