Damnit, just wiped my entire post out... here goes again!
Hey Boida, so sorry that things are kvetchworthy, and that stoopid folks can't even get your appointments sorted straight.
I hope that improves.
I totally get the falling down thing, I do it all the time and stumble around. Thankfully, my OT got me a walker (4 wheel with seat and bag) which, despite the indignity
is so useful, especially in garden and for moving things around in the house when my hands don't work, plates, cuppa teas etc. There are times I have fallen and simply can't get up so I also have an alarm to go around my neck, for my neighbours (though Dad has that right now as his need is greater)... it's so loud I think the whole village would hear it... not that I know any of them as my hermit lifestyle is a tad precious and my walker hasn't been out the front door but that so works for me! Great neighbours though.
Anyhoo, the point of this was to say there are small three wheel walkers which fold easily and could be of great use to you for the walking blocks and to ease your breathing so you could stop and have a rest; they are lightweight and do fold so one can stand by the door, also useful to pull up on if you do go down. I know you don't have an NHS but is there any bod from hospital who could maybe sort one out for you, mebbe worth an ask. If not, I'm sure we can sort something out if you think it could work.
Not sure if link will work... but something like this which has a seat etc
Or one that folds flat but doesn't have a seat...
Sorry if you already know this stuff, just wanted to say it's made a difference to me.
You're always in my thoughts and I'm sending you big hugs across the pond and wishing you wellness. Love love Boida xxxxx XOX x
