I made my daughter's swing set. Not sure how to explain the "swing", but when I was at my sisters' in Sacramento, California years ago, on her patio they had this chair like ha-mick (spelling?) material hanging. It was so comfortable. I thought that, this pretty much fits any body and allows anyone to sit in it even if they can't sit unsupported because it supports you no matter what. So, I got her one of those and then a friend and myself built her a swing set to hang it from out of wood. It's been perfect. I will see if I can find out the name of her "swing". It was under $100, and to make the swing set wasn't very much at all. Material is waterproof. We've had it for 10 years, maybe a little longer and its still going strong!

Good luck on Disney World and your dates!!

The letter is just a cheery confirmation letter. the cool part is it lists all your names and makes it feel real. My ten year old loved getting hers.

I think we r getting a limo to take us to the airport, but I am concern because I wasn't planning to take my daughter's carseat, so how does this work? MAW knows we are not taking her carseat.

I have an idea, but does anyone know if its the same company that picks u up when u return that took u to airport?

I just don't know what to go about this.

They have rented us an accessible van in Orlando to transport her w/c, and they did ask if her chair collapses and can fit in a trunk for going to airport.

thank you.

That's pretty neat, can't wait for Chatterbox to get hers!!

Chatterbox was a little under the weather this week. But I wasn't sure at one point if it was going to stay low key, or develop into something much worse...such is a life of a heart parent

We have been back from our trip for two weeks now and it was so amazing. So much more than I could have ever imagined!! I think Cade smiled more in those days we were there than I have ever seen him smile. It was definately magical for him. I am going to try to do a trip report.

Things have been very busy since we got back. Cade had a new MRI of his brain - some changes, but nothing major. An appointment with new GI doctor to see if we can make some improvements with the things going on there. A regular pediatrician appt b/c he got sick - thankfully it wasn't anything major.

Hello to everyone new! Can't wait to "meet" all of you!

That is so awesome!! So glad you guys had a great time, and that things have been going well since you've been back with just a few little issues that arose.

Looking forward to reading your trip report.

We leave a week from tomorrow.

Any suggestions, recommendations that are a must there?
