Stuck In Bed With A Sore Butt, Got A New Set Of Wheels

     Long time no see, I know. I find myself with more time on my hands than I know what to do with, and that's saying something, considering how bored I am normally. I find myself in bed, have been here for the last three weeks. I developed an abscess on my rear, just what I needed! The doctor at the wound care clinic thinks it is just one of those things, not caused by pressure from sitting in the wheelchair all day. Not much of a difference, I still find myself laid up in bed.

   About a year ago I received a new wheelchair, state of the art, and a piece of garbage! It was a quantum heavy duty by Jazzy, tilt, all the bells and whistles. In the first three months I had it, four of the motors went up. I threw a royal hissy fit and the company took it back. I went with a new company, figured it would just be a matter of ordering a new one, right? Nope, I had to start the whole process over from scratch. Finally I got the new one, a Permobil M3000, so far so good, except I flipped it over going top speed on the sidewalk. That story is for another day.
