Monday Memories of our Handicap Family....

When it appears weird, sometimes there is a story behind it.

Here I go out in a power chair with kids on crutches, to the store etc.  We were a strange nice looking family.  Hubs is a big burly man, with his incapacitated  family.

Our daughter had to have knee surgery at 16.  Her knee cap kept dislocating for no reason. 

While she was on crutches, our son 13, broke his leg.  He slipped on a skateboard.  We did not take him to the doc til later, assuming it was a sprain.

It was a difficult time, going to doctors, hospitals, etc.  I kept doing life stuff of a Mom.

Thankfully the school bus driver would call me, to pick up my son on crutches.  We did have help from kind people, such as Pauline (another story)

I am sharing some memories, to help us not to forget!  This is one of those times when, "this too shall pass".

How great that these limitations don't hold you back.

I hate to shop period!!! When I was on crutches, I didn't go unless I had to.

Woah! That was an incapacitated family! It is great when we can reflect on difficult times with a good laugh.
