    Happy, happy new house to you Sunshine! It might take just a little getting things in place, but remember to be patient and let others do. I am also glad you will no longer have to contend with stairs.

    Please do not wear yourself out, and let us hear from you when you are back on line.

    This is so exciting!

    Of course we'd like to know all the details--what is going where, how you're getting around in your new space, and whether you know where things are yet--but take your time, rest up as needed, and post when you have a spare moment.

    Thank you all for your wonderful words!
    We moved right on time. IT was grueling managing symptoms amidst the chaos. I increased Baclofen to 100 mg and that allowed a decrease of Tizanidine withno spasms.

    The house works so well for handicapped. There are a couple of design glitches i didnt foresee, that could be fixed in the future after the old house sells.

    The low counters and roll under the vanity are perfect, as is the shower, low sinks.
    Wide passageways are a miracle.

    Now that I can cook on low counters and stove, I realize I cant do it in a wheelchair. The food and spatters gets onto the chair, in crevices, on spokes from wet hands etc etc.

    Same with brushing teeth in wheelchair. The debris gets on the chair.

    So, I use a shower stool that I keep stantioned in two places in the kitchen and at the bathroom vanity, and I sit on that, with the wheelchair nearby to enable excursions from station to station

    What do you do to keep debris off your seat, and your wheels?
