There are several really good things that have happened in the past few weeks.  For those of you who have followed my blog for a while, you remember that I am the primary caregiver for my sister who has MS.  WELL, 2 weeks ago she got a wheelchair ramp!  I am in love!  She can roll herself down from her mobile home to the edge of the patio, where I can help her get to the car.  It used to be that she had to 'bump' herself down the stairs while I carried the wheelchair down to the bottom.  Whew!  MUCH better now.

Also, we found a 6-wheel power chair at a yard sale for her.  The battery works, but it only goes around in circles to the right!  It is rather hilarious!  We are going to the independent living counselor at the end of the week to see about getting it repaired.  Her insurance won't do anything.  At all.  They said that even if her regular wheelchair breaks, they won't do anything.  So much for her Medicare.  Anyway, the independent living counselor will be able to help, we hope.  If not, her doctor (he is great!), will have the foreman of his ranch come out and fix it.  He is evidently a mechanical wizard.

The photo above is called Brown Cobblestones.  It is a wedding gift I made for some young friends years ago.  I put it here because the post looked boring without a photo.  (giggle!)

Take care!
