Just got a call from my prymary VA doc. He was able to get the VA to reverse it's decision and I'm gonna be able to get a scooter after all!!!!!! Whoooppeee!!! Gonna be mobile again!!!!

I see the doc on the 29th and I might be able to get it then. We'll see how that works out (delivery, pick up, whatever) but that's all logistics and any problems there can be solved as they arise.

It's going to be nice to go for a "walk" with my wife again. It's going to be nice to not have to pay the price in pain when I have to take care of business. It's just going to be nice!

Congruadulations Dean;

I guess now you don't need me to bombard them with words until they either lose thier minds or change their minds. Just remember when you are on that scooter that the people in front of you are not on one and can't move as fast.

I remember when we would go to WalMart Johnny would ride the scooters there. Boy did he have fun. He liked to threaten to run over me but enjoyed being able to be with me and help me shop. Of coarse his favorite thing was to go to the McDonald's there to wait for me and have coffee. I don't think he ever realized that I knew about the hamburgers he gobbled up while there!! Still the scooter gave him a lot of enjoyment and us a chance to make some memories for me to hold on to.

Have a great time Dean and if you need anything else and they deny you just keep giving them hell until the see they error of their ways. Lillian

If I Could Catch a Rainbow:

If I could catch a rainbow, I would do it just for you, And share with you its beauty, On the days you’re feeling blue. If I could build a mountain, You call your very own, A place to find serenity, A place to be alone. If I could take your troubles, I would toss them in the sea, But all these things I’m finding, Are impossible for me. I cannot build a mountain, Or catch a rainbow fair, But let me be what I know best A friend that’s always there. Author Unknown

Dean -

Well, good thing you live in California - it's been in the single digits here in Chicago, and the idea of a "walk" doesn't sound appealing!

But really, that's GREAT news! Make sure you "stop and smell them roses" on the walk!

Hugs and prayers,

Are you sure your daughter didn't call someone?????

I am really glad you are getting your new toy. It will be so nice for you and your wife to be able to get out and about and not have to worry about you getting so tired. I am very happy for you.

Have fun with the new toy. I love your postings. They truely are heartwarming to read.

Much love,
