        Job well done, Frodo. Being a decent caring family member, that is. The HC set up looks good as well.


        Popeye only reached for the Spinach can as a last resort...

        Your mother is very fortunate to have a son who's so dedicated and handy. Your setup looks good, functional and accessible from both sides of the hospital bed.

        I do hope that your mother's life is as comfortable and easy as it can be given the physical limitations. Frown

        Sounds like you're also the chef as well? Big Grin[/QUOTE]
