    Hi Mare! It's been a while, I know. I'm in Mount Dora right now visiting my son. He is living in a residential behavior home here now. I found I couldn't take care of him alone and he's been living here since May 11th. He's doing great. I decided to pop on over here and saw you were online...

    Husband fell head first into bathtub!

    I'm glad your hubby is okay! My hubby did the same darn thing back in April or May, I can't remember which. He was walking past the tub and lost his balance and BOOM in he went! He also hit his head. I was amazed he didn't break the skin THAT time. It was on June 27th he wasn't so lucky and had...

    Our Roll in Shower is finished!

    LOL Beth! Not too worry. I wouldn't be so bold to post pics of our roll in the shower! Trying to stay positive- I'm finding the dimensions of the shower to work just fine. We do use a full size shower chair.

    Our Roll in Shower is finished!

    Thank you everyone. We are very happy with the results and the shower is proving to be quite functional. Tfisher- The shower is not very big. It's 59" long and 34" wide. As you can see from the photos our bathroom is more long than wide. Thelma- It is not marble, but porcelain tile. Joel-...
