Well an update. Big step forward this week. I escaped the care home with my Brother in a wheelchair (care home are great btw) and we managed to transition from that chair into 4x4, in pretty much one attempt. Mainly with my brother standing, leaning against the car and seat, and pulling up on the grab handle on the roof to get bum on seat. Then swivel right leg in and lift the left. First time in a car for 6 months.
We took a trip, stopped at a pub by the river and had a pint watching the boats! (in the car). Felt good to be out and about.
The reverse transition from high car seat to wheelchair was a little harder, because he has to swivel 90 degrees before sitting down into the wheelchair, and with a dead left leg and a weaker right leg, that was tricky.
But he was so pleased and it gives extra dimension to being able to get around.
I thought I would share because I read many posts from people here and they have progressed a bit faster, or weren’t so severely affected (in this way at least). Every step is important.
