Wheelchair update

lightupI thought I’d write a bit of an update to let everyone know what is happening in  reguards to my new wheelchair.  I don’t have it yet, but it has been ordered, and is in production as I write this! 

On Thursday, April 5th I recieved my new casters.  They are 3″ micro lighted casters a lot like I have now.  They light up with red, blue, green and yellow lights when they move.  I find these to be very useful because they light up the space under and around the front of my chair so Sophie can see exactly where my front wheels are at night and how close my back wheels are to the edge of the sidewalk etc.

I also got my new Spinergy LX wheels.  I decided on 25″ wheels this time instead of 24″.  They are the same as my old wheels (red spokes, red tires, and foam coated pushrims.  The only difference is the tires are Kenda, and not Primo.  I think Kenda tires will be better though, because they have a different thread and are used to play sports like tennis and basketball. 

I’m suppose to get my backrest on Tuesday, April 10th, and my backrest supports and cushion on Wednesday, April 11th.  Then hopefully I will have my new wheelchair by April 29th!  Hopefully a lot sooner!  I’ll let you know when I know a shipping date for it for sure!  Wish me luck on getting it really soon!
