My New Walking Cane
Hey Andy, using a cane helps your leg, how does your elbow take the added work? When do you get the pin removed (or have you already)? Looking good, glad you are healing.
It’s about time! You might want to get a rubber tip for that walking stick. It will keep it from slipping out from under you at an inopportune time!
Yes, a rubber tip is needed. This walking cane does not effect my broken elbow, because I use the right arm for the cane. The HUGE problem with 2 crutches is not being able to carry things, makes is difficult to clean room, or do any normal chores. What is great, when I walk with the cane, and carry heavy items like my laundry in my left arm, it forces my elbow to stretch. My left arm is sill only about 90 percent straight, but getting better all the time. This accident has forced me to empathize with personal limitations. The list of physical problems is endless. Just the other day we cancel a boat trip because 3 of the people going did not want the trauma of a bouncing boat. Denial is rampant, standard mentality, for example, when a person demands to rent a car, I almost assume they have a urine or bladder problem. The more people pay for apartments, the more I assume they have multiple physical problems, sort of human nature to live in denial, and I love to observe human nature, but do not enjoy dealing with other peoples physical limiations.
