In Need of Walking Canes

Last year, we spent our Christmas at my in-laws place. Though I didn't feel like driving for 12 hours due to the fact that I just came out on a six days stay at the hospital. I had kidney rejection and the doctor told me to take it easy, but I have no choice but to go with the flow and plan...and drive for long hours. When we got there, all I want to do was to rest and do nothing. But once again, I don't want to be the spoiler, so I do whatever they want me to do. You would think they know that I can only do so much. I was still tired and weak, but they have forgotten all about it. I tried to be nice to them because I don't want to offend them.

As I said: I want to stay home and rest, but there were days that they wanted to go for a long walk....and so we did! I had trouble walking fast to catch up with them due to a leg cramps. When I told my mother in-law about it, she mentioned that she has Walking canes at home and that she uses it when she wants to walk faster. Anyway, I didn't get the chance of using it when we went for another long walk again two days later....I didn't know that it was going to be a long walk again....I didn't bother to use my MIL's walking canes. However, hubby tried the walking canes and he liked it. And so when we got home from our trip, he started looking for Walking canes for men . He found one online, but they were expensive. Then we decided to look for one at Walgreens and even Walmart...and tada...got a pair of men's walking cane for an affordable price! Now, I can use his walking canes anytime I want to go for a walk!
