    Question of the Day: What things did you wish existed to help make the bed-rest life more enjoyable?
     
    This is something I thought about the last time I was bedrest and there are two things. This might exist already but, some sort of device that will allow you to effectively and comfortable use your computer while lying horizontally. This device would be able to hold the laptop or netbook and be adjusted at any angle. So that if you're lying on your side with your head down, you could have your laptop resting at or near 90 degrees at the edge of a bed so both arms could be used to type ::laughs::.
     
    The other thing is some sort of 'wheelbed' likened to a wheelchair where you could move around a space to make lunch or throw laundry in and do other such tasks. This 'wheelbed' would have the capability of allowing you to lying anteriorly by having an indentation or opening for your growing ute to fall into if you so choose to rest that way (another option perhaps than just lying on one's sides all day?).
     
    I'm not crazy.... Just trying to help pass the time y'all!

    A personal assistant that thinks like you do that can finish your to do lists like you would. I'm having some control issues : ), but it's best for the baby so we're adjusting the best we can.
