A bed for little people

As I was preparing to have my hip replacement surgeries last fall, Ed got risers for our bed as it made it so much easier for me to get in and out of bed while I was recovering.
Well, today, Ed helped me replace the bed skirt and he asked me if I wanted to take the bed off of the risers and I said, sure, let's try it without them.
Oh my!!!! The bed is so low! It makes ME feel SOOOOO tall and that is saying something because I am SOOOO short! *smile* The bed looks like it was made for Munchkins! *grin* But I think I like it being low once again because I like praying at my bedside and when it was on the risers it was like my face was stuck in the side of my bed, so I most often would pray in the front bedroom where Daniel's old bed is.
One other thing about the bed being low.....Ellie, the kitty of the house, gets on a mad tear running through the house and she just runs right under our bed into the bathroom and then immediately takes off and tears back through the house. Ed is waiting for her to whack her head on the bedframe. (He is a sick man. LOL) He forgets that Ellie is very aware of the slightest change that takes place in this house, be it bed risers or whatever. Cats are like that. It must be their natural curiosity, better known as nosiness. *smile*
Anywayyyy.....we are now pretty low to the ground and I'm hoping that we don't have any mishaps in the night! *smile* (fingers crossed).

Praying for this to work out for you dear one.

We had a cat who would whack itself by times. She would step back, gain her composure and put a look on that said "I meant to do that". It was hilarious.

Oh, I'm doing fine with the bed being lower, Denise! I actually like it being lower! But thanks for your concern!
Wellll, Sir....Ellie did whack her head into my side of the bed this morning! It was so pitiful but she is fine!!
