Something scary. 

 

Today I took dad to the park.  With the use of a transfer board, I slid him out of the car and into the transport chair.  Then I removed the transfer board from underneath his buns.  Well, he fell backwards on his chair!  I angled the board too high to get it out from underneath him and that’s when he went back!

 

Good thing the handle bars and wheels gave space between him and the black top.  Otherwise, his head would have slammed against the black top!  I checked his head and he seemed fine.  Nada.  No complaints, like nothing happened.

 

We went for the usual cruise and he talked away.  Feeling fine.

(Next time I’ll have the back of the transport chair against the car when removing the board….)

Time to learn how to fall forward, Ruth. Best of all. Keep falling in love. With life. That's real forward progress. --Jim
