So I made a change, not big, its mostly in the way I need to think.
I have finally been to the doctor WOO HOO.
My legs are totally disabled and not ever going to get better. Sooooo. I can sit in this house and rot or I can do something about it.
The biggest thing that has lowered my quality of life, besides pain, is not being able to enjoy my valley. I love the valley and spent my life walking in the park system or reading by the river in times of trials and stress. In 4 yrs I have been to the park 3 times I think.
Let me say I can walk, with a decided limp but I can walk, I just shouldnt. Like the more i do today the sooner I will be dependant , that kind of thing.
So I decided I am in need of a wheelchair, so I can go to the zoo, the park , I havent been to the mall in yrs as there is too much walking there too. The same day I decided to look into a power chair ( independence is an important variable here) I got the best opportunity!
My DIL heard what I was thinking and got on the phone and voila I will have a hover round that should allow me to go to many of my favorite places, and I will have it by the end of the week.
The deal was 200 for a battery and 200 for the chair. The first 200 needed to be down payment and he would do payment arrangements with me at like 20 bucks a week :) 200 cash was an issue but I made a call and someone is helping me with it. I am so excited. I will be able to enjoy the beauty around me this summer.
I know something could go wrong but it looks like I will have some freedom and I am so happy. God does provide and he has a lot of good people here who help him. I am so thankful!
