My brother and his wife came up from Norfolk long enough to take out the trash. The nurse was here to check me out, then the cats and I napped for three hours and the physical therapist woke us up. He wants me to use the quadcane for a while, but then I can't carry things. I just remembered that last time I wore an apron so I could carry things there. I threw that out years ago. I wonder what I can find.

I just need to be more steady. I've almost fallen three times so far today.

Would a cardigan or light jacket with pockets do instead of an apron, for carrying things? Just a thought. Otherwise a tool apron -- the kind that professional cleaners use -- would possibly be good, and could probably be found at Home Depot, if you have someone running errands for you. Or I bet I could make you up something custom, but it would be a couple of days before I could get it to you. Let me know if that would be a help.

Also: Marilee! Whee! I'm so glad to see you're home again and it's wonderful to see you back to posting to LJ! I've been thinking about you while you were away, and hoping you would get safely home soon.

Oh, I have a cardigan with big pockets! And it's warm. Thanks! I won't be online as much as before.

I second the idea of using a tool apron, but if you decide to go with that, and want someone to get one for you, ask them to look for an apron with substantial ties, or perhaps snaps, rather than the string ties that I see on a lot of tool aprons.

I think a tool apron (what I had last time) is still a good idea.

I'm so glad to see you posting again. You gave us a scare. What exactly is a quadcane? Is it one of those canes with four legs at the bottom? Good luck with the apron search. I have a hoodie sweatshirt with a wonderful deep kangaroo pouch in the front. Its great for carrying little things while leaving my hands free. Plus its warm. Maybe something like that would work for you?

Yes, exactly, but I was too wobbly so I swapped to the walker today.

Marilee,

Do you have an Amazon wishlist? Is there a mailing address where folks can send you things? Inquiring minds wanna know . . . (and if you don't want to share with the whole class, you can always email me at laurel@tvpicks.net).

So glad to see you posting again.
I second (or third or whatever) the tool apron idea or a cardigan with pockets while it's still cold.
Take good care of yourself,
Doris
