So, short story DH can no longer button his shirts, his hands have arthritis :?

So he has been shopping for pullover shirts.

Anyway, I thought of Penny and how she refashioned her tops when she had her shoulder surgery.

I bought some Velcro dots, and I'm going to try them with his shirts and if he likes them YEAH!!!

So thank you everyone. 8-)

What ideas have you taken from "us" here to make your life easier?

Can you button up the shirts for him so he can put them on as pullovers? I have ben doing this for years because it saves a lot of time.

My hubs can't button shirts either. He bought shirts with snaps. Hard to find, but gives him choice. Most of the time here in Florida, it is too hot to wear anything by tee shirts. We found an online place that sold them cheap and got 35 (as I recall).

So that is that. DH does not want the velco on his summer shirts, I'll take the velco back to the store, I was so proud of the idea.

Tears are in my eyes, I'm so hurt, how silly am i??? :( :cry:

I just feel so done with trying. :cry:

I did make sure that there is a card for his mother and I did go out and buy her her candy, I hope that I have the strength to NOT go with him to his mothers today, send me some strength!!!
