That is great news!
Wow. What assistive technology do you use for the computer?Life moves on. I'am very happy, that everything has turned out for the best. I myself was in a car accident and is now a quadriplegic, paralysed from the neck down, wheelchair bound. I'am very grateful to have survived and to continue on with life's wonderful jouneys.
Our District has a medical equipment loan program. We have a hospital bed, power chair, commodes, and walkers stacked like cord wood. It does get used, but I wish more people knew about it.On Friday, the 18th, Sandi moved to a local nursing home for continued rehab. No more extra 2 hours of commuting after work!!!
We had been training on wheelchair transfers and maneuvers, but she had to leave the one she used at Wake Medical Center, and complained today that she was sick of being in bed, after 48 hours. She is waiting for a wheelchair of her own to be approved and delivered.
Our Masonic and Eastern Star Home, now called WhiteStone, started an outpatient equipment loan program a few years ago, in the local districts, and our immediate Past District Deputy Grand Master, a WhiteStone Board Member, has solicited several pieces of durable medical equipment, now stored at the lodge across town.
After a few phone calls, we got a loan of a somewhat worn, but very much appreciated wheelchair!
I hope that a few months down the road, we are able to donate the (new) wheelchair we expect to be receiving in a few days, to this fine program.
By that time, we'll probably be borrowing back a walker and a bedside commode that we donated after she had ankle surgery.
Does your grand lodge have a similar program?
