My lazy boy thanks to Junior.

It's been so long since I've written I had to look at my blog and see where I had left off which isn't a bad thing when you have MS it just means that I had the opportunity to leave it behind for a while.

I had the opportunity of using "Junior" not due to a fall rather I wanted to try it to transfer safely into my lazy boy recliner. We hadn't used it before and took our time making certain the straps were well positioned. I must say the unit worked extremely well, it lifted me without a problem and Denise had no difficulty in turning it and positioning it so that I would be deposited safely on my recliner.

Although it may sound trivial I had been looking forward to this moment for quite some time. Having given up trying to transfer because I was so afraid of falling this was a long time overdue. I remember feeling comfortable and then and then lights out. What seemed like a moment turned into several hours of sleep. It was absolutely fantastic and I plan on doing it again in the near future.

It is a tool that provides me with more confidence knowing that should I end up on the floor is a simple matter for my spouse to get me up off the floor back into the chair.

An expensive device for certain yet one worth every penny.

We cannot put a price on anything that keeps us off the floor!! Hope it works out

Good to hear Junior works well Michael! I bet that was one of the best naps you have had in a long time.
