Haven't been on in a while, excuse me..... For anyone considering remodeling bathrooms these are essentials night lights and reorienting yourself for several seconds if you are sleeping in another bed, and wearing slipper socks or shoes.
Here's what happened to me, we are having our masterbath redone after 15 years! I got up at 1:30 am in the morning with socks on I had parked my cane on the outside of the hall bathroom and was just finishing up when I tripped over a lip in the saddle of the bathroom. I fell on my right thumb and had the all to familiar feeling of breaking it.
What had I done wrong, first of all I had only socks on, secondly, there was low lighting, thirdly I didn't have my cane and fourthly there was a lip in the saddle on the floor which wasn't supposed to be there.
Next morning, I had the saddle repaired, made a vow to not walk in low light situations, had my hand xrayed, and put some sneakers by my bed. I almost broke my hand and it was a miracle that I didn't.
Hopefully we can all learn from my stupid mistakes, BE SAFE EVERYONE!
