Happy Birthday to me

Happy Birthday to me

https://youtu.be/emapZzstxzU Another year has gone by and another number added to my years alive. I certainly am not complaining. I am actually grateful. Things were really good this year. My life was completely changed by many people, friends, family and others that barely know me contributing to my fundraiser for my van. This was at the perfect time when walking with my walker was becoming too difficult. This van gave me freedom. I was able to conserve energy that I…

That makes a five plus hour infusion so much better. I get to be…

Well after several attempts of pushing each of the five buttons that operate the door/ramp my aid and…

Out and about in my handicap van

Out and about in my handicap van

Well the 8 month journey to purchase my van was really worth the experience I had yesterday. To be able to press a button that opens a door, sends down a ramp that I can just wheel myself into is more liberating than I even expected. What makes this even better is I am finally able to use my main wheelchair which is a Hoveround MP5 . Using the travel scooter for many years was convenient. It broke down and…
