Re: my knee surgery/now neat stool

today while laying in that machine I saw a neat idea for us gardeners. They took a wood disc about 12" in diameter... then drilled a hole for a screw then screwed a decorative post on to the bottom then screwed a final ... a big kind of round squared off one.... to the bottom of that. He also stapled on a strap so that you could carry it around. He showed how you can use it to do gardening without kneeling down... and it looked great. I think it was on a DYI channel. I will look online for the real directions. I really do want one... or two to give away.
Has anyone ever seen these or used one?

My mom had some home care that came in to
help her when she had trouble.  Do you know of anything like that with
Medicare?  I think this CPM machine is a key factor... but you would have
have help getting into it and out of it. I have been able to get up to 90
degrees today... started at 30 on Thursday and need to get to 120*
Be sure to get the help you need... as gardeners we need our knees!!!!!

Tricia, yes Medicare does pay for home care for certain surgeries such as
knee replacement. The CPM machine is used for knee replacement also. I
used a
machine in my therapy sessions similar to that but not at home however my mom
does have one. Actual I am a gardener that does not use my knees. I stand
bent over & do so for 8 hrs or more a day at times with no problems.
Perhaps my shortest is helpful.
