Do I post this or not?
It seems eccentric and banal.
But what else is there to post of today?
So here we go.
AC has a new blanket. Electric.
It is to use, not in bed, but in my chair.
You see, sometimes, AC sleeps in his chair rather than in bed.
Because sometimes body parts hurt less there. Or at least, one is too confined to roll about and get oneself into hurting positions. Once I settle into a suitable position in the chair, I am pretty well bound to maintain it. Not so in bed.
But I can get cold on a winter night. While I already have a good blanket, it becomes insufficient on a very long and cold Canadian night.
I thought of adding an additional layer. but rejected the idea because two layers would be difficult to control in a narrow, reclining chair. I tired wearing a hoodie, but it wasn't enough. I tried wearing a wooly sweater, but it was too bulky and a little prickly. We thought of opening a sleeping bag, but that would be very bulky in my little chair and room and probably slippery too.
Sue came up with a solution. Purchase an electric blanket; one layer isn't bulky or unmanageable, but the electric heat would provide sufficient heat to keep a body warm.
We tried it out, and it seems that it will work. And the colour looks rather royal, eh?
Except, I have yet to use it at night, for I have entered a stage where I have been doing well enough in bed lately.
This is the way that AC's life goes.
