We had decided a long time ago ( like a year or more) that we really needed one. We have kept him in his infant stroller/travel system for 5 years. I would say that was doing really well. We have many( stay tuned for that one!) new reasons to get him into a bigger one that will help me carry him.
We got everything started and the IHC monopoly.. I mean wheelchair shop was looking to see if they had any year end models that they could just "give" us but they were fresh out. In order to get the stroller there is a TON of paper work. It has taken over a month and we have yet to actually order it.
Today his physical therapist called and said the one we wanted another mom had and is hard to open. Tomorrow I am calling the mom and seeing if I can see how hard it is to open. I don't want to go through the hassle of ordering it if it isn't going to work.
What is hard is that we are limited in options. Tyler doesn't need a ton of support and all the stroller are designed with MASSIVE support. They have nothing that isn't a wheelchair. It is so frustrating to be on the look out AGAIN!
If anyone has any experience with Stroller and wheelchair hunting, PLEASE let us know.
