What a great question but unfortunately, I don't have an answer. Are you waiting for things via mail? If so, would it be possible for you to use a more local place- perhaps someplace that might even deliver them. I know before my surgery I visited 3 local medical supply stores because I wasn't sure what I might need once ai got home. One of them delivered on certain days. That's about the only thing I can think of. I hope someone else can help.
