It’s Here!

Yesterday my scooter arrived!!!  I took the day off to make sure I was there to sign for it.  It came midday and the guy didn't make me sign for it. I'm so happy to have this.  Now I have to figure out how I'm getting it in and out of my car so I … Continue reading It’s Here!

Drawing to an End

Errands are run.  Coupons are clipped.  Ken will grocery shop tomorrow.  Once I get up, we will prep the meat we got for the freezer and hopefully prep stuff for breakfast and lunches next week. A headache has settled in the last few days.  At times, it is migraine level and at others it is … Continue reading Drawing to an End

A New Scooter!

I ordered my new scooter yesterday!  My DVR counselor pushed the paperwork and got all of it done so I could get my scooter on order!  The scooter should be here in a week to ten days. I still have to go back to work with the manual wheel chair next week but there will … Continue reading A New Scooter!

Scooter Update

When it comes to medical / health care stuff, I find myself annoyed, frustrated and distrusting.  Over the years, I've had doctors do stupid things which have adversely affected me.  However, I try to go into these situations with a positive attitude.

Updates

The insurance came back early and not with good news.  They aren't going to pay for anything with my scooter.  I could fight it but don't really feel I have the time.  I'm waiting for my doctor to get back from vacation to see if he will write a letter for the folding scooter in … Continue reading Updates

Vacation!

Ken, Vicki and I took vacation to go to Florida for one of Vicki's conferences.  On the way we stopped to see Virginia and Stephanie.  It was good to see them and have time with them.  When we were with them we kept it low key and hung out at their house.  We grilled out, … Continue reading Vacation!

Ups and Downs

My scooter broke this week.  This meant I had to walk much more than I'm supposed to which has resulted in me being in a lot of pain.  The scooter new costs $1500 and I was panicking a bit but after a bit of research, I don't believe we will have to pay that unless … Continue reading Ups and Downs

Pride?

I hate asking for help.  It has been three months of relying on others for assistance, and people are so kind and willing to help.  Yet I hate asking for help.  Yesterday I was stubborn – ridiculously so.  We had a storm here in Wisconsin.  I was up and on my way to work just … Continue reading Pride?
