So, DH and I were going to get ECVs for our trip in three weeks, but we decided to put that money elsewhere. We decided that he can bring his wheelchair and I would bring my walker. My main problem is my sciatica. If I stand in one place too long I can no longer move without searing pain. This also happens when I walk too much, but I really think it’s the standing for any length of time that pushes me over the edge. However, I have been doing some exercises that have helped my sciatica, and decided that walking would allow me to eat more carbs while there.
I have been practicing walking as much as possible while using the walker. Went to our town’s Christmas festival on Tuesday and did pretty well. When I needed to stop, I could sit down on the walker. However, it was nowhere near the amount of walking I will be doing at WDW.
Now, DH has developed issues with his legs being weak, so he’s using his wheelchair a lot. Before it was just if he needed it. He has good days and bad days, but it’s been years since he’s needed his wheelchair for everyday things.
If I am using the walker, which I think I can handle, I can’t push him in his wheelchair. DDs touring plan takes her off to rides that we don’t want to ride, so we won’t be together all day. I’m concerned now that we should be renting the ECVs, or at least one. But they are a pain to get around in, and we are definitely NOT riding the bus again.
I am second guessing this whole thing. Hmmm.
