Something so little as a set of steps, causing so much problems. Ryan has not been able to go upstairs in our home, independently for over 4 years! 4 years since he has been able to walk upstairs. Once he was no longer able to walk we used a stair lift to get him upstairs and then transferred him to a manual chair. Since his back surgery over 1 1/2 years ago, he has not been able to use the stair lift which means he hasn't been upstairs in 1 1/2 years! Now that I think about it, this the first time his power chair has been upstairs!
I am SO excited I can't even begin to tell you how happy it makes this moms heart to see my boy in my kitchen again! He had to check everything out, Jake's messy bedroom and of course the refrigerator! The little things, being able to see whats in the refrigerator! He was all smiles!
I wanted to share this happy moment so here is a video of Ryan doing a test run of his Mega ramp. Keep in mind it isn't done yet, still a lot of work to be done, but it is done enough that Ryan was able to give it a try! He made it upstairs and we were able to have dinner around our dining room table as a family!!! I just can't even begin to tell you what that means to all of us!!!!!
So thankful that God gave Jeff the talents and gifted him in such a way to be able to do this. Thank you Grandpa chuck as well for being the apprentice ( clean up man ). Thanks to Jake as well for being the assistant to the apprentice!
