For the last month or so, since I haven't been allowed to weight bear on my arms, I have been using a powered scooter at the nursing home. While this allowed me to be mobile, I didn't like the idea of using a "old persons hover-around" at 37 years old. During my first day of therapy here at Mary Free Bed, the therapist measured me and put me into a lightweight Ti Wheelchair. Whoo Hooo! I'm in a chair that doesn't make me look 80!
It's now been 3 days in a manual chair and while I am sore from pushing, I feel more free than I did before. I haven't pushed myself 100% of the time, Angie has been there when I get tired and helped get me around.
