Well, a couple days ago we put in an order for Lucas' first wheelchair. As the provider said - "and so now the fight begins" when referring to the insurance companies.



Lucas has been getting around in one of three ways: 1) medical stroller being pushed, 2) scooting around in his walker, 3) or me carrying him to his ultimate destination. The walker which he was primarily using was the kind with the seat and wheels. The seat was starting to give out so I put some aluminum angle iron… Continue

2010-06-19 Motivation and Perseverance with Duchenne

Posted on August 13, 2010 at 2:08pm 1 Comment

I wrote an article on my personal blog regarding my motivating factors. Out of my top five motivators, family rang in at number 2 and happiness came in at number 1.





Living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy can try anyone's will, patience, and

resolve. Over the past 8 years we like many other families have had our

share of difficulties with doctors, agencies, and the condition

(From old blog)



We recently had the opportunity to have a first hand look at a converted Honda Element for wheelchair access on the passenger side. I was very

pleased in what I saw.



First off I have not been impressed with some of the accessible transport vans on the market. We once owned a

Yes. I think last year was his first time for the MDA Clinic day. We just changed insurance providers, but think we have authorization for him to attend this summer too.
