Good news! Mom finally got her power wheelchair. Most of it was covered by medicare and insurance and MDA paid $2000. We only had to pay $1400. Now we can go places without me killing my back and arms carrying everything, and pushing her at the same time. We went out to BJ's which is a large store with WIDE aisles. Mom did great! She got to shop for herself. She hasn't been to a store since before Christmas last year. Then last weekend we had a barbeque and she was outside and wheled herslef aroung from person to person and had such a good time. She lookd great. Gained 6 pounds. We just had our driveway blacktopped ( Just moved into our house in April) so Mom can get around outside better ( it is a HUGE driveway...over 2200 square feet). We feel so blessed! Just had to share the good news!
