Boot Lacing Tip For Added Circulation In Lower Legs And Feet



I've done similar lacing with my boots, as shown in the informative video, because of my diabetic peripheral neuropathy and edema/swelling of feet and legs.

Sometimes they're so swollen that I cannot even fit them in my boots or shoes, even with the laces removed, and at other times when I'm dehydrated, my feet look almost emaciated and my footwear feel loose unless I wear thick socks.  My shoe size since high school has 13 extra wide (4E).

I'm supposed to wear shoes all the time to protect my feet, except when sleeping/showering of course, as any injury or sores that might develop (heels crack and bleed) could easily lead to infection and amputation...



Stair handrail bracket failure...

I was climbing the stairs to the penthouse yesterday (room over the garage), and was three or four steps from the top when there was a snapping sound and the handrail popped away from the wall as I was pulling on it. 

Luckily, I fell forward instead of backwards, and let loose a few choice adjectives of the NSFW flavor.  I almost spilled my drink.

I took a bracket off the shorter rail at the bottom of the stairs to use until I can find a replacement...
