Vehicle lift on order!

Today the vehicle/wheelchair lift for the back of our car was fitted and ordered. We're going with a Bruno Curb-Sider. I can't wait for it to get here! Bertrand's wheelchair weighs an awkward 50 pounds, Bertrand himself weighs about 40 pounds, and the 8-month pregnant belly I am hauling weighs 30+ pounds. I've been lucky to stay out of traction so far, but only by declaring surrender and resorting to using Bertrand's Maclaren Techno XLR (stroller) rather than his Zippie IRIS (wheelchair). However, his wheelchair is by far the better seating system, so I am eager to get him back in it! We're aiming for an early March delivery and install. Keeping fingers crossed that all goes smoothly!
