on the move?
We're Getting our Wagon Back!!!!
After something like a month and a half, there is some movement in the process of installing adaptive driving gear in our car. Remember all this? We had to take the car forty miles away to have all this installed, and when it was, not only did none of the gear fit Robb, but the mechanics messed up our brakes? And we haven't had our car during the entire period.
Yeah. Remember that?
So, today, I am going to the mechanics to sign a form saying something along the lines of "I am satisfied with the condition of my car." And then, the car will be towed to another company -- one town over from us -- that will install all of this, all over again. Only this time, they will ADAPT it to fit Robb. Imagine that! Adapting the (oh wait? what was that stuff called again? hang on, it will come to me....) adaptive gear, so that Robb can actually drive.
In Happier News...
Robb is really and truly getting a recumbent trike! I'm so utterly thrilled!
Not only is he getting a custom made trike (you can't exactly buy one off the sales floor at Target, or your local bike store), but he'll be getting a frame thingy so that he can use the trike as an exercise bike. We've got to try to clear out some room in our garage...
Neither of us are certain how much stamina Rob will have for this trike, but even if we go out on the bike trail and only manage a short distance, it will be so delightful for Robb to be able to move quickly, and feel the wind in his hair.
