My name is Tom. I am 65 yrs. old. I was diagnosed with Addison's at age 41, first experienced neuropathy in the bottoms of my feet at age 48, took early retirement from my job as an Industrial Electrician at age 55(balance problems were becoming more noticeable and could have been dangerous to me and my associates in an industrial setting!) and was finally diagnosed with AMN at age 57.
My youngest son and his wife are expecting their first child(and my first grandchild) in about a month. I would like to be involved in caring for this child (other than sitting in a chair and holding her). Does anyone have any ideas for someone like me to safely transport an infant from place to place inside a house or from car to house, etc. I presently walk with a cane everywhere and use a walker at night when I have to get up and use the bathroom(usually about every 2 hours!!) It won't be necessary for me to be a sole caretaker for this child, but I would like to be able to do what I can when needed. Thanks in advance for any ideas you can send my way.
