This morning marked the end of over 3 months of sponge baths! haha WHO CARES? And well you may ask. Well, I DO!!
I am the champion sponge bather after spending more than one period of my life being forced by injury to leave a proper shower behind for a few months. But it does get tiresome, it is awkward, it is inconvienient, it is time consuming!
Today that all ended as I stood in the tub, bravely clung to my newly installed shower grip bar, planted my feet firmly on the non-skid mat, and delighted in the cascade of water flowing down my back and around my feet. I didn't even need to sit down on the bath transfer bench. Not even once!! The bit of weight I can now handle putting onto my healing ankle even without a shoe made all the difference.
Such simple pleasures so easily taken for granted.
AND I am so grateful for a teeny tiny bathroom where there is so little room to fall down!!
