New Chair!!

We had a surprise call while we were at Grand Lake and the new chair is in!  Mike (the guy we got the chair from) came Tuesday after we got back and worked on it and then the next day till 1:30.  It was super nice.  Dennis could lift his feet, lay his back down, it was just really a really nice chair.  It had a contoured back so it fit Dennis really well.  Dennis was also looking into a new computer and with DRS help he got one.  This was a joy because he felt like he could really communicate with the outside world again.  It took awhile to get used to it and we had some great help from a man in OKC named Sterling Krysler and his wife Lori.  They are wonderful people and they drive up here to help Dennis with his new equipment and he also calls him on the phone for sessions. Dennis uses a program called Dragon Naturally speaking and he also got a cell phone that works by voice command.  Big steps!
