I don’t have very much to tell in this writing, but I just had to share some happiness. I want to spread it to everyone. My son took me and Al to the bigger city, and Al talked about license plates all the way and John Deere tractors. We got there quickly it seemed. It is an hour each way but with all the chatter, we got there in no time. The sales representative let Al ride this one all around the store a few times. He is a little afraid of it and went at a snail’s pace, but with time and getting used to it, I know he will pick up the speed some. All he kept saying is he liked the color, candy apple red. He didn’t understand the freedom this will allow him and although we talked a lot about it on the way home, he doesn’t get it yet, but he will. Candy Apple Red! That was what mattered. I am so happy for him and for me. No buying lifts for the car, no going to auto shop for readjustments. This one is nice for me because the seat comes off, the battery compartment lifts out, you fold down the handle bars, and pop it in the trunk. It has two moveable arms, to help hold him in place. He does sit somewhat sideways on it from his TIA and Parkinson’s, so I am happy with the sturdy arms around him. When we got it home, my son tried it out and we got a chance to see a little more power out of it. After bringing Al inside the house, and my son went home, I took it for a small cruise down to the mail box. It was like riding a grown up bike without having to work the legs. Freedom? Yes, I could feel it. I only hope that he will feel it soon also. Now he can go to the car show, and I won’t have to push him. He is napping now, and I am relaxing with my coffee. The ad is placed for the new caregiver, and all is well for today, so far.
