Love your name and attitude! Sorry to have you here, but welcome fresh faces and positive feelings all around. My husband received his official diagnosis in February of 2011. I look forward to seeing you around the forum.
Love and light

Steve B,
Welcome! Sorry to hear about the DX, but during the day I envy that electric chair of yours! I'm still working and walking gets to be a real chore by about noon. I've been prowling this site since shortly after my DX in Feb. These people are amazingly nice and very helpful. I'm glad you found this site

Steven B, Hello! I think your having the power chair already was really good planning. A ramp and power chair are great to have ahead of the need if your legs go first.

BHappy, Do ask your ALSA for help. They can come and see what you need, and then find you great things in their loan closet. Same with the MDA. I had a loaner power chair through the ALSA.
