When you think you are helping someone, you get the look! I called the Scooter Company, while my brother was eating his lunch. I wanted to see if there was any help for him to help him be able to go more places and keep some of his independence. I got the look. The shaking of the head back and forth in a no direction. Al hates being talked about. Only if it is something good or funny that he doesn’t mind. He got so angry with me because I was answering their questions. Actually, I have been afraid to see if we could get him a chair. The cost of them even with medicare, leaves us with a twenty percent out-of-pocket expense. He heard me telling the representative about his diagnosis, and his age, and birth date. He finished eating and went straight to his room shaking his head all the way. I tried to ignore him, as I knew this would better him. By the time I got off the phone, he was already fast asleep. I also worry, because I won’t be able to pick this new chair up, if he is approved. Medicare will pay for it, this is approved already, now it is up to the doctor that we now go to see on this Friday. If he is willing to fill out the paper work. I think he will be, but you never know for sure until you hear the word yes. In order to be able to use this chair to take places I will have to do something about our car. I don’t know about a lift, and what it costs, or if it will even fit on our car. I guess I will pray about it and worry after I know if he gets the chair or not for sure. I had run Al and me to the store and bought a new stain for the rocker. It was a quick in and out of store thing, so Al didn’t have any problems with this today. Here is a picture of the finished rocker. It is outside drying, and soon they will be able to take it home and the little one will be able to rock all he wants. It makes me feel good when I can place smiles on others faces. It makes me also feel useful. I think this is why I have mainly been only a mom and a caregiver most of my life. I did have my antique business, but it was more seasonal. I would love to get back into this one day. It is nice and quiet in here with Al sleeping, so I think I will go out in the yard and water my flower bulbs. Out of twelve, four are now peeking out of the ground. Talk to you soon.
