Re: This bad hip...
What a coincidence. My daughter called today to tell me about a used scooter on Craig's list for about $250. I'm having trouble walking any distance but at this point I don't feel I'm ready for one. I asked what I was supposed to do with it and she said I could go for "walks" with her. I said I didn't need to go rolling around the neighborhood rather indignantly. (Truth is that I should be using my legs actually walking to build strength not sitting as much as I do.) I said when the time comes I feel I need it, I'll pay the price and get a new one that suits me. Thanked her for her thought but no thanks. If I were to get an aid at this point, it should probably be one of those things that you push around that has a shopping basket and a seat. Keep us posted as to how the scooter works for you. Is it small enough to use in the house and get through doorways?
