The shower chair. is. awesome.
As part of my post-surgery life I've had to purchase a chair for the bathtub as I can't stand in the shower on one leg, and I can't soak my leg in a tub. And I still need to be clean. Enter: The shower chair.
You sit while taking the shower. I'd never even entertained the thought before- but now that I've done it - it seems indispensable. No more long 15 minute stands while you're rinsing off. No more achy legs while you are "upright" first thing in the morning. You don't have to stand up to the shower- you bring the shower to you. On your terms.
It's so great. I think it'll be a permanent fixture even after I'm healed up and two legged again.
