|Checking out Sulley and Mike Wazowski |
before our appointment.
Everyone has told me that Shriner's Hospital is amazing, and I believed them. But hearing it and seeing it are two different things.
|Snoozin' while everyone else works. |
That's his new chair they're building
in the background.
They listened and reworked things as I explained how we function. The end result? Amazing!!
Really, I was blown away.
|He looks so grown up!|
And that new (to us) minivan we recently got? Well, let's just say there ain't no way I would be able to lift this new baby into a car by myself. The seating on this chair is also higher up, so Aaron has a first-class view out the windows as he rides along. Can you tell I'm pretty happy?
On the side is the IV pole which holds his feeding backpack, and then in the front, but much easier to access, is his suction bag.
The seat back doesn't recline like his first wheelchair, but it has a "tilt-in-space' function which lets me tip the whole seat backwards and forwards with a foot pedal. And the brakes are pretty easy to work and amazing as well.
The oxygen tank and his school bag go between the seat and everything else.
They call this a CR Fusion by Ki (pronounced like "key"). We call it downright awesome.
