It seems like yesterday that Elisabeth got her first wheelchair, but in reality it was close to five years ago. The original chair was okay...for a while, but soon proved to have many flaws. She constantly slouched, it was wide and awkward to push, and it had a flat back that soon was not compatible with Elisabeth's severe scoliosis.

The new chair...ahhh...the new chair. It drives like a dream, has a removeable and washable cover, and best of all...is molded to the shape of Elisabeth's back. If you look at the picture above you can see how it curves to fit her exactly. Oh, and I love that the front of the seat is extra wide so she can sit Indian style! Because we all know that Indian style is the only style for Elisabeth!

For the frame, we chose the color white. We felt that it represented Elisabeth's pure and angelic nature. Plus, it will be fun to dress it up for holidays. (I just bought red tape to attempt to make some candy canes!)

And did I mention the tray?

Merry Christmas, Elisabeth!
