A Little Wheelchair Maintenance

In light of my upcoming parole, I figured I might spruce up the ole chair-iot. Besides, it was about time for some regular wheelchair maintenance that I harp on people about all the time. You are doing your regular wheelchair maintenance, aren’t you?

The Sore Saga

On June 9th, 2015 I finally made the major step to fix the damage done by my own inner stubborn battle.

After scrambling to find a ride, we end up meeting her son at the local emergency room where the paramedics have already delivered him. After a brief checkup, the docs send him on his way. Luckily, with no bumps or bruises and a prescription for soreness over the next few days.
