I got my lift Sunday, so Mom was using it to help me into and out of the shower.
All went well till it was time to get in bed. The lift does not fit under the bed, and bed transfers are usually OK, so I just got into bed the normal way.
I planned to anyway. What happened instead was I missed the mattress when I sat down and slid to the floor.
We can do this, Mom said, so we got out the lift and got me back in my chair. I then tried again.
It happened again!
Again, we got out the lift and got me back in my chair.
At this point, I noticed the mattress was pushed back, so while I was plopping down in the right place, the mattress wasn't there.
We moved the mattress, and on this, the third try, I succeded.
