My new wheels!

I'm now the temporary owner of a knee scooter!!!

I was serious about rigging up my wicker bike basket.


I can't tell you how much happier I am. I loathed those crutches. My foot still throbs something wicked, but to have some additional mobility as well as a way to carry things, makes me so much happier.

A basket on the scooter, that makes me smile. I am glad you are able to get around better, I hope you feel some pain relief soon. Don't overdo it on your new set of wheels:)

Just goes to show you can't keep a creative person down - and when they get up, they will create something practical and cute!

Get out...this is fantastic. We can get out of the house now? I can see about getting a bigger basket and we can haul some really big thrifty scores in this. So glad you can move around. I was hoping I would see this this morning...smiles...Renee

I am so happy for you that you are now able to move around some. Just be sure you still give yourself time to recover from the trauma of surgery. xoxo

So glad the scooter is working for you! I need to let my MIL know...she fractured her heel and is supposed to stay off it but crutches are hard to use, especially if you are older (85).
We just finished Easter/Spring ribbon topiaries! Now that is something you could do in your non-ambulatory condition.
Great time filler.
Keep on healing...day by day! Hugs, Lee

What a cleaver thing to do...yes, cruches are very uncomfortable. I hope the pain in your foot gets better soon, I know from experience how much pain is connected to foot surgery.

Good for you! I love the basket-I can tell nothing will stop you! We better get out of the way now that you're mobile again.Hope the throbbing stops soon.

I love it- but I hope you are soon to the point where you don't need it. I think you should wire some Spring flowers to that little sucker! xo Diana

Jodi said...

Love it! I remember when I had foot surgery - ohhh those stupid crutches - I'm so glad you have an easier way to get around - praying the throbbing gets better and you heal quickly!

Sandy said...

So glad this is working, and I love the basket on the front! Too cute! Happy Easter Kim!!!!

Hey don't you need a license for those thingy's....ha ha. I've almost been run over by people with those things. It's amazing how people lose their manners when they think everyone should move the world for them cause they're injured. I always tried to stay out of everyone's way, however I do get really ticked when someone parks in a handicap parking spot illegally. I've been known to hunt them down and chew them out. If you haven't already, please remember to get a temporary handicap placard with a form from your doctor. It will save you ton's of aggravation while out and about.

Love the basket....I'm waiting to see what else you attach to your wheels.

Hugs,
Meri

That looks so much easier to use than crutches. And stylish too!

Courtney said...

You need a horn on that thing to warn the family when you are coming. Sending prayers for continued healing and safety on your new wheels.
