Wednesday, August 11: Update

Another day gone and we don’t remember getting to the end of it. All we know is that everyone is asleep except us and we’re eager to join them. So this will be another short update so I can get some sleep.

Claire’s therapy sessions went well today and she was able to squeeze in an unexpected occupational therapy session. Claire still dislikes morning sessions and let the speech therapist know it today. Tiffany was able to get her calm in time for the next two sessions and Claire performed swimmingly.

We started researching some other wheelchairs for Claire today. We are looking at units that resemble traditional strollers (buggies for Claire’s Easter seaboard supporters) instead of heavy, standard wheelchairs. We hope to place a new order by the end of the week.

Thank you for your prayers and encouragement. Talk to you tomorrow and goodnight!

  1. I ordered Sam the Special Tomato EIO Pushchair from I really like it – it looks just like a stroller and has great support and plenty of room for growth. It folds up easily and has a sunshade. I use it for quick trips when I don’t want to use his wheelchair. It’s pretty reasonable if you have to pay for something out of pocket. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Praying for sweet Claire and your family. Blessings to you!

    I continue to keep your sweet little girl in my prayers during the day. I am not sure of Claire’s age, but I am guessing she is three (like one of my little boys). And I pray you both are able to get some restorative rest each night.

  3. Tyler,
    If you need help with funding for the wheelchair, I would love to help your family with that šŸ˜‰ Blessings, Brittany

  4. My friend Lisa had that kind of a chair for her daughter KatieBeth. The chair was easy to push, and could go anywhere, especially outside on trails, etc.

    Blessings, prayers, and hugs go out to you all today!

  5. Hi Tiffany & Tyler,
    It was great to see you Tiffany, I think of you every day. Continuing to pray for you and your sweet family. Wishing you the best in finding the right stroller / wheelchair for little Claire. Blessings to you all and just email me if I can help in any way (food, errands, babysitting, shopping, etc…), please just let me know.

  6. We also have the EIO special tomato (worst name ever) and it’s a great stroller – you can also get the seat/back inserts that help with positioning. It’s rugged and has lots of growing room.

  7. After reading Tuesday’s update, I instantly wanted to clap out loud and applaud you and Tiffany for …. for just being so darn dilligent and taking control of your situation. You both are utterly amazing and truly personify “going the extra mile” and being “Super Mom/Dad”. You guys are inspirational and your girls are very blessed to bare witness to, and be recipients of, the immeasurable supply that is your love for them. It kinda makes me teary. šŸ™‚
