Mary's Driving Lessons

For the past several months we've been in the process of getting Mary ready to drive. Yes, we've been evaluating her for a power chair! We'll the time is coming closer to when she will have her own power chair, but for now she has a loner chair from the Kluge center where she does her PT. Here is a small video of the first day she brought it home and drove it in the driveway. Mary loves to turn in circles. We are still working out the details of how she will interface with the chair, but for now she is using proximity switches and it is working ok. Hope you enjoy the video!

Dear Mary, Kate, Ryan & Jackson:
We heard that you had a very scary episode and we are so glad to hear that you are doing better. Mary, you are always in our prayers along with your mom, dad & baby brother. We hope that the tests they are doing will help you to feel a lot better. You were doing a great job in the power chair, we were quite impressed with your driving skills!
