Check out this boy's new wheels!

We picked up Wyatt's new wheelchair this afternoon! Ahhhhhh! We are all so relieved to finally have this chair. We submitted the original order 2 years ago in September. Thankfully, the seating clinic at the children's hospital had the ability to loan us a previously used power chair, that had been donated to them after the owner received a new one, to use in the mean time.

Here he is!
I won't get into the whole insurance mumbo jumbo, but it all came down to having a fantastic case manager (through our insurance company) who took the time to present Wyatt's order and medical information to the medical director herself, which was all they needed to reverse their decision from denied to fully approved. Hoooray!
It's a pretty slick looking ride, don'tcha think? ;-)
He was excited to see his name embroidered into the seat. So much so that he made a quick inhale and had an instant smile come across his face.
It has power seating....which Wyatt is really enjoying!
We were told he got the first ever made of the color screen. Bonus!

He's happy.
