Out for the tree in a new ride

Brayden new jogger stroller arrived.  He had outgrown the size you can just buy at a store.  We had to order a new one as we would a wheelchair...through insurance and medical equipment company.

Several months ago, I was emailing back and forth with a mom, she shared some pictures of her family.  In one of the pictures I saw the jogger we wanted for Brayden.  A wheelchair cannot handle all of the activities we drag Brayden to so we needed something more durable.  In that picture, I saw a jogger.  A jogger that looked like any other jogger stroller, but bigger and not all "special needs" looking.  I had an already scheduled meeting with Brayden's PT and medical equipment guy.  This email could not have come at a better time.  The mom emailed me the information on the jogger and that is what I handed over at the meeting.

Months later (after insurance denial, then approval), the jogger arrived.  We put it together, just in time for the trek out to cut down the Christmas tree (and basketball games and a wrestling meet).
Of course his chair is adorned with Christmas lights and bells.
Jogger made by Special Tomato.  It comes with support padding but I have not put it all in yet...I was focusing on getting Christmas lights on the jogger...priorities.

Hi, my name is Kerri and I have a two year old, Cole, with almost the exact same diagnosis as your son except for he does not have a feeding tube or vomiting. I found your blog a couple months ago and have read every thing. I just wanted to say thank you for your blog. You have gave me hope, inspiration, and knowledge that I need.
