I ended up ordering a microphone stand and a cupholder for a walker and attaching to the stand. It works well for him to have his mug where he can take a drink whenever he wants without one of us having to hold the cup for him. I hope this works well. I found my parts online and it only cost me about $25. I attached a pic but not sure if I did it right and if it will come through.

that is just great!

I did a more complex one, I will upload photos of the parts of it and video of him using it for the first time as soon as I can. It may be a future enhancement.

My Chris could not suck through a straw, and believe me we were the house of straws at one point as I bought every straw I could find hoping to find one that would work, even the one way type.

Well done, these are truly victories because that little bit of independence is huge for both parties. Just to be able to enjoy your own drink of something in your own time is really quite a big thing when it is every single drink you want, every single day!
