A new challenge. Fallen and can't get up
This is a new one. My gal fell in the bathroom, wet herself, and couldn't get up. I heard the fall, and I went to calm her and get her sorted out, but…I couldn't! I got her soiled laundry off, and mopped up the floor around her, but she could not get up, and because of where her mind is, she could not understand the most basic instructions to roll over onto her hands and knees. We sat there for nearly an hour, and to my eye it was like watching a nature documentary about upside-down turtles. My wife outweighs me, and is physically weak, and completely clueless about her own limbs. She did eventually, randomly, get on her knees. I sprang into action, got a stepladder in the right place, and we managed to get her vertical. Once steady, i put her back to bed to rest and get her strength back.
What next? Grab rails in all bathrooms, and maybe in the hallways too. It's time to make the house ADA compliant, and I am considering moving our bedroom from the second floor to the first. If we get to wheelchairs, I have a plan for that too. I was just minutes away from calling the fire department for a lifting service, but it's 1:30am here, and I just don't want all the lights and attention if we can avoid it. And the dogs, of course, always helpful with strangers and lights and etc.
So, long story, but whoo-hoo, here comes another chapter of this fun ride we all share.
