First Taste of Freedom




Skylar got his loaner chair today, we are modifying the joy stick because it is about 3 inches
to far out for Skylar, its a work in progress. Sky got up and he loved it, he was doing doughnuts in the living room and pretty much every where he went, he was only in it for about 30 mins... But i think he truly enjoyed each and every one of them and is very excited to get back in and go. he did great, we only crashed one time, and then he figured out that stop means take my hand off the joy stick. Enjoy the quick video of his first taste of freedom!!! There is something to be said from a mom who has wished and prayed for her little man to get up and go, and these 30 mins of freedom for my Sky were and are absolutely priceless!!!!

VERY COOL Skylar!!!!!! I can't wait to see you driving around outside. You are an amazing little, I meant BIG, boy! Ally also got a loaner chair this week, but unfortunately, hers is WAY too big. We used lots of pillows to fit her in it, but no driving yet. She drove at the Rehab center twice, but we need to modify this chair much more before she can drive. Then the two of you can cruise together.

Hugs from Chicago,
Tina and Ally
