The chair was generously lent to me by my Occupational Therapist and her parents the other week. It was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and generous of them and I am so grateful. It makes a true difference in my life.
The chair needed a special leg support built and attached before I could ride it. So, yesterday my wonderful dad pulled out his tools, went into his garage, and a few hours later had a perfectly crafted leg support.
After weeks of having to rely on others to push the manual wheelchair any time we went outside, it was downright exhilarating to have the independence and freedom of controlling and directing my own movements.

My hope and goal is my knee will recover over the next several weeks and months until i can once again regain one of my all time favourite hobbies, going for long walks. Until that time arrives, i am so incredibly grateful to have this powerchair to take me on little rolls around the neighborhood.
It allows me to take a huge step forward, not just in terms of regaining independence but also dignity and quality of life.
