Out with the old...

The frame was cockeyed, it was difficult to keep the seat locked on it...

... and Megan couldn't keep herself upright. Does this look comfortable to you?

This was the last person to sit in the chair before we left it in the hallway on the way out the door.

(ahhh, my first blurry background. I'm sure I'll get better at it with practice.)

...and in with the new!

Very much better!

This new chair is more comfortable, shaped to fit her body**, and has a sturdier new frame. We started the process for this new chair last October. So, you can see why it is so exciting. When you finally get the things you need, you really appreciate it. Waiting in anticipation has that effect on you.

**Shaped to fit her body The back of the new seating system in this new chair is filled with this foam stuff that came as separate liquid compounds and creates a type of soft (yet sturdy) foam that is poured into the back of the seat and molded to fit Megan's curves to give her additional support since she has so much trouble keeping herself upright. This is a picture of what it looked like in the bowl after they poured what they needed into her chair.

And this is what it looked like several minutes later when it finished growing. It really made a mess in the box. See how shiny it is. It was actually very sticky and when I put my fingers into it - you could see the imprint in the top. It sure is amazing what technology brings to everyday life.

Oh yea for Meg! I can't wait to see her in her new chair! She looks so much older in the new chair in the photo.

Also- I love the picture of Monica in the old chair. She has such a great smile!

Megan looks so much more comfortable! And I love the color and how her name is etched on the seat. It looks super cute and super practical all at the same time! What patience you have to be waiting since October.:)
