Mary H: One Happy Client
Mom doesn't go out anymore without someone with her. She had to go to see about an orthopedic modification to one of her shoes and a friend took her today. First outing since the installation of ramp.
REPORT: A++++ Usual routine helping Mom down the stairs, seeing to it that the backdoor is closed, any lots of little details. Then upon return to house, getting things in the house while Mom sits in the car. Today, Mom, I'm told, made it down the ramp - no problem. When friend brought her home and was taking groceries into the house, she turned around and discovered Mom had gotten out of car, closed car door, and was halfway up the ramp. BIG step toward some independence (as much as she can have under circumstances) and BIG BIG help to friend/volunteers and ultimately me. I am sooooo happy.
Thank you so much for the photos. I was hoping to get the group picture of her and the volunteers. I know she was hoping to get a copy. Is that doable?
Anyway, today was an incredibly successful day for her and me. Everytime someone was having to watch her go down the two steps, I feared either a leg or foot was going to cave in and it is a lot of responsibility to place on a friend or volunteer and the ramp has provided a considerable amount of comfort in soooooo many ways.
BTW, I've been singing the praises of the "ramp project" at work. One of my colleagues here has a niece in Plano and she has a child with cerebral palsy. I gave him the information to look you up on the website. I'm sure your article has increased your inquiries exponentially. I am just so grateful that I found the project when I did. Congratulations on such a successful and meaningful venture. How refreshing.
