Hey guys thank you so much for your help so far! Our new goal right now is to purchase a Shower Buddy. I normally give Daniel a bed bath unless one of his relatives decide to come over and help me get him into the shower which is about twice a month. I hate having to rely on relatives, especially when they are busy and not able to come out to our house. A shower buddy costs nearly as $3000. Let's face it, I'm sure we all prefer taking showers over a bed bath. I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays, I will keep you guys in touch on the latest.

So far this year, my parents were able to help us purchasing a new (ok a used) van. Our old one had no A/C and for a man that doesn't sweat anymore and not to mention that we live in the high desert, A/C was a must! The lift on the old van caused problems where Daniel ended up stranded in the van! So we are blessed with the van right now where Daniel always wants to get out of the house! Lol. Also to keep everyone updated, Daniel is on Medicare. Medicare doesn't help out much and it won't help cover the cost to fix his chair. There has been a recall on the controller to his chair, luckily since its a recall but we don't know what all that it entails. Other problems to his chair is that the feet won't elevate up which is pretty important for him when his blood pressure drops. Also one small detail of his chair is that the knee brackets broke off which is why you see in pictures that his legs are wrapped together. Daniel went to therapy for a little bit in our town to work on his arms, but since Medicare won't cover much, we couldn't keep up with the payments. Daniel has been doing little workouts by using therapy bands or by using custom gloves that his mother made for him and attaching dumbbells on them. Well little Evan just woke up, hope everyone is doing well. Thank you for your support!
