Right after we got the stair lift installed in the house, I got a call from Edda’s teacher suggesting that we use Edda’s wheelchair and the lift on the school bus to get Edda to and from school safely. I hadn’t even really thought about it, but of course, it makes perfect sense. We have always had Edda walk up and down the bus stairs with a lot of assistance, but she could do it most of the time (up especially, down not so much). Now Edda weighs so much, it is very difficult for us to manage her safely up and down the bus stairs.
I suppose this is a milestone of sorts, I had my camera ready and took photos, but it is a little heartbreaking at the same time.
