New Wheelchair and New Van

After over a year of trying to get a power wheelchair, Wendi finally got one on August 10, 2022, paid for by Medicaid. During all that time, her ability to walk worsened considerably, making it easier for them to approve the chair.

Now we needed a mobility van, with a wheelchair ramp, to accommodate the new chair. I had to take money from my IRA to do this because insurance doesn’t cover it. We were able to order one through A&J Mobility, but it wouldn’t arrive until September 13; meanwhile, our old 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan broke down, so we had no working vehicle from August 20 until the new van arrived.

A guy bought the old van for salvage on September 24 but was unable to get it moved until September 27.
