First Solo Shower

I’m clean! I’m clean! Today I took my first solo shower in five months and it was WONDERFUL! I’d practiced with occupational therapy, figuring out where towels needed to be, and how to manage the actual washing, and standing up. That was a kind of risky part, but it worked and the legs stayed steady. What we hadn’t quite planned was that I would need three towels for this project – one for the wheelchair, one to dry off with, and one to mop up the water that got on the floor. To keep that from happening, I think I need to get a new shower curtain liner, and to rethink where the towels during the shower itself. No reason why they couldn’t get piled into the wheelchair instead of threaded through the grab bar. I’ll try that next time. Maybe tomorrow?
