Terry the truck entry problem may be as simple as one of those small folding stools they sell at camping world. If she can make two or three small steps up into the seat instead of one big haul it should work.

After your accident didn't you use a ramp to get into the Airstream? If you still have it, Marie might be able to use that to make entry and exit safe and comfortable. And if you happen to be towing the Airstream, she could use that for the door there too.

Marie, I'm so glad you're home and recovering. What can we do to help you continue progressing? I'm going to need my skylight replaced before too much longer so I'll plan to come to your neck of the woods again soon. Let's do lunch!

Paula

To everyone who has asked, I am doing very well. Able to lift left leg, when walking, not dragging it any more, and left arm and hand pretty much back to normal.

Any one who wants to stop by and see us/me are very welcome. We will not be able to travel for awhile due to home bound therapy, but would welcome others to stop.

I am very thankful for prayers and well wishes as they helped a lot.

Marie

You are movin' right along, Marie.

I had told Terry that if you want to come to Alumalina in March, you can share my site as there is plenty of room.

Lots of folks there would love to see you both.

Take care, and keep the updates coming in. We like happy endings here.

Terry

When my mother with post polio syndrome was living with us I made a set of nesting boxes each about 4 inches higher than the previous one and these three made it easier for her to get in my Tundra, then I just tossed them in back of the pickup. They were more stable than stools

Good morning.
We are heading back to the hospital this morning for her first follow-up visit after her release. Hopefully, everything will be okay.
Marie will actually get to ride in her new car...

We learned two things today.
First, Marie is coming along pretty well. The doctor complimented her on her progress.

Second, she can't drive one of those handicapped scooters they have in Walmart to save her life. I think they're still cleaning up the carnage from her visit. I know my feet still hurt from where she ran over them...

Good to hear, Terry.

Always nice to see that great sense of humor shining through.

Hugs to you both.

I picked up a pair of steel-toed tennis shoes. My feet should be much safer, though they feel like I have a pair of cement blocks on the end of my feet.
