Drivers Training Begins....

Well here it is........FINALLY........the Cadillac of Power Wheelchairs. Here he is cruising around the lobby of the therapy building, showing off his new wheels.
Just can't wait to get going...........'Com on Mom lets go!!!


You want me to go slow???? I laugh in your face!


Isn't he good? He's already checking out over his right shoulder to make sure no one is behind him!



Today was a roller coaster of emotions for me.
Finally Daniel will have the freedom to roam around (and run over) to where ever he wants.
Flip side: I just signed off on purchasing a WHEELCHAIR for my 2 year old son.
This is NOT fair, no one should have to do that.
Is this me giving up? Saying he'll never walk?
NOPE!!
Cause today he also got his Nimbo Reverse Posture Walker.....
and I would love in a year to be able to put a big "FOR SALE" sign on the wheelchair
because Daniel will be walking......but until then.....he might as well enjoy his ride
RIGHT?!?!
