Yesterday was Witt's first real car trip! Tonight Witt will stay in a nursing home near Killeen, Tx. This is the last step in Witt qualifying for a special medicaid program. I went along to lend a hand if needed. To make the trip a little fun and just in case there were any issues we went a day early and stayed in a hotel close by.
ALL SETTLED IN FOR THE 4 HOUR RIDE
STOPPED FOR A DIAPER CHANGE!
One of the harder things about the trip is the packing. Thankfully all of Witt's equipment is portable but there is quite a bit. Another issue is lifting Witt in and out of his car seat while maneuvering his tubes, oxygen and ventilator! This is probably the biggest need for the family right now...a vehicle where Witt's cart can simply be rolled in and locked down. His cart is also a car seat and if he could just be rolled in that would be wonderful. I have talked to some people about raising money for this and now I am praying and trusting in God to accomplish it!! Witt was a great traveler. Hopefully, staying in the hotel was a treat for Mel and Austan...it sure was for me!
Witt played with his toys...
and enjoyed his mom!!!
The pack and play provided by the hotel doesn't work for Witt because of the tubes but a good old fashioned pallet does!
This afternoon its off to the nursing home to check in. Then back to the hotel because Witt, Mel and Austan don't have to actually be in the room for the night until 9pm. Please pray that the night is not too hard! Pray that God uses Witt, Mel and Austan in this setting to bring glory to His name!!!
