First of all thanks for all the support..I wish I had found this site years ago...but now that I have I hope I can help someone else going thru the ups and downs
Now back to the countdown #4
THE ADJUSTABLE BEDS!!!!!!
As someone who has a lot of joint pain related to the disease sometimes finding a way to sleep can be hard..that is if I can sleep at all. But in the hospital I can raise my legs or head to the perfect position..LOVE IT!!!! I also take my own body pillow and queen size fleece blanket so it is just heaven. I brought a Woolrich brand blanket from target about 2 years ago and with my anemia it is my best friend. All the staff loves it. Sometimes when I go for test I pray that it is still there when I return. So far so good...maybe I should install a Lo-Jack on it just is case.
I can't afford to buy an adjustable bed for home so I just enjoy while I can during admits. Talk to you guys later.
