Back in July, I posted that we were in the process of finding a wheelchair for Tyler. We had decided that the Quickie Zippie was the perfect fit for him and were patiently and ANXIOUSLY waiting for it to come in. We were told that it would take approximately 4 weeks. Well 4 weeks went by and we were still waiting. It was almost 8 weeks before we received it because insurances were going back and forth on who was going to pay for it. I guess I shouldn't complain since it was nothing out of our pocket and the entire time we still had the demo chair that they were graciously letting us borrow. Let's just say that we put that demo chair through the ringer. It was banged into walls, it went camping and fishing with us and it was thrown up in. We had some major cleaning before returning it.
Tyler's new chair is awesome! It offers all the support he needs, the wheels are in a reverse configuration so they are easily accessible for him and it even has his name on it. But my favorite is the color. It's toxic green!!
