It probably feels like people are piling on, but they're not - we all want you both to be well-cared for in a way that works for both of you. Unless you can grow another pair of arms, renting good help is the answer.

I'm glad Jeri was able to get you out for a few hours. Don't let the unexpected wheelchair failure stop future excursions for yourself. I hate those commercials for the button, but it does sound like this is a good time for it. If the thing that will make all of the difference is the empty room for the bed and the commode, what needs to happen to empty that room now? Can someone rent one of those PODS for you and a group of people come over and fill the pod with room contents? Whether it stays there or moves off-site for a while, space is the thing you need, so I hope you'll let people help you make it so. And I wish I didn't live 2000 miles away.
