On our way home

We went out that night after all of the testing to dinner and a movie. Jacob was glad that it was all over but more excited to see Night at the Museum II.

We did find a great pie place right across the street from our hotel and we did have to stop by before bed.

Although we had to pry Jacob out of bed that last morning to catch our plane, he was excited to get home to see his brothers. Of course, Jacob collected a lot of gloves from the security people and wings from the pilots and crew on each plane. He is the only kid I know who asks nicely and everyone takes him everywhere. They let him go up into the cockpit, but I couldn't go, so I had to wait and watch him have all the fun.

Katja mit Fabian und Florian said...

Hi from Germany,

I found your blog by chance.

My son, Fabian, age 10, is wheelchair bound since he fell from a tree two years ago.

It was a very hard time for all of us after Fabians accident. The moment when the doctor told us, that Fabian is paralyzed and the moment when we must told him that he never walk again, was so terrible. Especially terrible was the day, when Fabian got his first wheelchair. I still cry when I saw him sitting in his wheelchair at the first time.

But Fabian is so brave! I am so proud of him.

Since his accident Fabian visits a school for special needs kids. All other kids in his class are disabled, too. The most kids must use a wheelchair, tree kids can walk with a walker / quad canes.

Every Saturday Fabian visits a sport group for children in wheelchairs. Two hours they play together in their wheelchairs. It is so funny for the kids.

Two month ago he got a new “Spidermann”-wheelchair.

If you are interest I will send you some photos of him in his new wheelchair.

I will be glad about a short answer mail.

Best wishes Katja
