It’s Adjustable

Today marks three weeks since I busted my hip and had partial hip replacement surgery. It’s also been a week and a day since I was discharged to home from inpatient rehabilitation. I’ve been back home for just over a week and my rehab is progressing, albeit slowly and rather painfully.

When I was in the hospital, I was in what seemed like an infinitely ajustable bed. You know the kind. It had a bunch of different positions it could be adjusted to. The mattress wasn’t terribly comfy, but I managed, sometimes with the aid of a helpful nurse, to find a relatively comfortable position for sleeping.

Upon returning home last Friday, my wife and I agreed that, for the duration of my recovery, I’d sleep in the guest room. Our 70 pound dog shares our bed, and the last thing I needed was to have her jump or roll over on me in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, our guest bedroom mattress is about 15 years old and my first night sleeping on it was not very pleasant.

So on Saturday I called a local mattress store, asked them about bed frames that adjust and hybrid memory foam and coil spring mattresses with cushion top to go on the adjustable frame. And I said I needed it fast!

This past Tuesday afternoon, my new mattress and adjustable frame were delivered and set up and my old guest room mattress and box springs hauled off. It took me a few nights to get used to it, but with a handy dandy remote control device that offers a variety of positions, including massage options, I’ve fallen in love with my new bed.

Now I have to figure out how to tell my wife that I may never return to our conjugal bed even after I’m fully recovered!

    Time for a matrimonial mattress upgrade perhaps?

      She’s fine without me. The dog, that is.

    Good news on the bed, somewhat tricky on telling the wife! 🙂 I would enjoy it while you need it and think about that later! Take care!

    One of the best ways to heal is to get restful slumber. I’m glad you acted quickly to get your adjustable bed installed. Way to go!

    Won’t you be shocked when she says, “Finally the bed to myself!!!”

      She’ll probably appreciate the quiet and not being woken up by my snoring.
