Hi john,

When we remodeled 3 years ago, we put in a whirlpool tub. Little did I know that it would be so hard to get in and out of it. We even installed handicap rails to help but they don't help much. I wait until the tub is full and then kind of plop myself into it. When exiting, I always do it when the tub is still full so the the water can help me. Sure wish we had spent the extra bucks for the walk in tub. Some of them have water and air jets. That would be the one for me.

I think the same fronts came through Wisconsin recently. It's all I can do to get an hour or two of light gardening in.

By the way, LOVE your Dr. Suess quote. It is the way I have lived my life.

Take care and soft hugs to you,

maggie

I wish I could tell you how to feel better. But I (like most here) know what you're feeling. Can you call your doc and ask what you can do?

hi maggie

your probably right on the weather as im in saskatchewan canada and i know when i was driving truck from here to indiana all the time it was alot of the same weather paterens that i drove thru. . lol

yea the new walk in tubs have everything in them. . we just have a regular tub now and with a tear in the labrum of my left shoulder and needing my right knee replaced not to mention the extra weight i have gained its imposable for me to get in and out of the reg tub. .

the problem with the walk ins tho is they will not give me a price . . they want to send someone to the house and im sure its gonna be i of those they provide the people to install it to thier spec's. . but il find a way around all that. . lol

well it just started raining again here. . lol

Hi john,

You're looking at several thousand dollors at the low end. someone recently told me their quote was over $10,000. I looked them up on the internet and you could get a good one with all of the extras for less than $3000 (well, that was last year) but you would then have to find someone to install it. That is the way I would go.

Hope we both get one someday!

Soft hugs,

maggie

john when I win the lottery I will share it with you and we can both have a house and walk in tubs lol... have a good day...
When you need a friend, reach out to a stranger and you will have one. If you need help, help someone else. if you need to cry, find someone already crying and celebrate life. Love Jan
