They did it. The physical therapists, the aides, the nurses, the activities people, they did it! They collaborated in this deceit, the scheme, the plan. They got my Mother to use a walker. Of course she still thinks she is not using the walker. She is pushing this wheeled thing-a-magiggy, her cart, (do not say walker) to help her carry items for other people. Mom is being helpful.
And of course, it is helping her. It helps her get up from sitting. It helps her walk in a much more upright position. It is taking some of the pressure off her knees. It helps her with stability. It helps her move faster.
