Being cold

November 15, 2006 at 7:21 pm

Nate gets cold really easily. I have at his suggestion left a jacket in the car to keep there.
That way if he gets cold while we are shopping or driving, its already in the car.
He can’t get in an out of a bathtub yet due to very weak legs, and being a big guy doesn’t help.
I think I know now why he likes lonnnnng showers.
The warm water feels so good and warms him up for awhile.
He wears sweat pants most of the time unless its real hot, like 85.
Not only are they warm but very comfy and soft for him. He even sleeps in them and socks along with a really warm plaid blanket!
He still has loss of sensation in his legs and feet so keeping them warm is really important to him.
They even feel cold to my touch, so I guess the nervous system isn’t keeping them warm yet like his arms are now.
Whenever he is strong enough to get in and out of a bathtub, he will love mine. Its a big oval one with lots of room to soak.
Thanks for the suggestion.
