He has used a cane for several years, and has a walker. He says he is
willing to use
it, but usually carries it held up instead of rolling it along. He has
been willing to go
to the Metropolitan Museum and be pushed around in a wheelchair a few times.
When we flew to the West coast last summer for our family reunion and 60th
anniversary, he agreet to flying first class an having wheelchair
assistance. My son
who works at Alaska ordered wheelchairs for both of us - I think Chet was
me to push him. It was really great because the pushers knew exactly where
instead of having to wander around trying to find the right gates, etc.
I bought him a new cane today - one of those with four feet. I think it
will be sturdier
than the one he has been using - one that had belonged to his father. I
will weather this episode, but don't know when to expect the next.

Is he willing to use something like a rollator? Dad wouldn't use a walker,
and it took him even a long time to get him to use his cane, but the
rollator really works well for him. He has a balance problem and also
shuffles, despite PT. When he was in his 80's, physical therapy helped
a bit, now, not so much, but he'll be 99 in January.
Nothing exciting. Just his own feet. He really shuffles along and loses
He tripped on the edge of the driveway this summer and damaged his face -
have plastic surgery, but that's all healed up now. He was better after he
weeks of physical therapy last spring. If I can get him to go back - as
the doctor has
prescribed - I am sure it will help. I guess he does reasonably well for
his 85 years.
