We finally got the official order of a silver Quickie Zippie Zone Wheelchair in for Roa. By Christmas, we should have the custom built chair! Excited and sad all rolled together. Roa actually had the demo chair at home, school, and therapy for this week and did seem happy in it. Laura, PT from school said he loved tooling around the playground in it and going really fast with his friends! Roa had made a good friend named Caleb at school and they hold hands and play together. Tears of joy from this momma!
Jeremy, the builder of our swing set, helped make us a wheelchair ramp in our garage. Roa is so excited to have a ramp into the house for his gait trainer and chair.

School is going great! Roa is so motivated by the other kids and is more vocal in all environments. He is even attempting to imitate more speech. We have started using the My Talk app on the iPad to help him communicate his needs and thoughts. He did a wonderful job using his iPad while trick or treating, To say, thank you and trick or treat.

We continue with our busy therapy schedule but are actually taking a little mini vacation to Wausau, WI with good friends to get away from it all and to swim......of course!
