Today is Pearlsky’s birthday and her class is having an outing to an organic farm. Don’t ask what that is, I have no clue. Anyway, I sing ‘Happy Birthday’ while getting her ready (why does she laugh hysterically when I try to sing?), put her in her chair, and … notice that one wheel is leaning against the side of the chair at the top, and wobbling. Why is it always something?
I call the great DME guy, Sandro, and leave a message on his cell. We do medicines, etc. and I put her on her play mat, and just as I start taking the chair apart, Sandro calls. We walk through the problem, I fix it and for good measure verify that the wheels on her old chair will work in a pinch, as long as I have the right tools, etc.
Now she is somewhere, doing something, in a chair that I am nervous about. Hey, what’s a birthday that goes too smoothly?
A couple of quickies.
Finally, that dork Erica gave me some blog award. Generally I ignore these even though they are very nice. This one I will complete … if you care at all, hit the <more> tag (ed.note: changed to “continue reading …” for Claire) to see my honest one word answers (as she did) to 35 weirdo questions.
