Just a thought...

Yesterday, I was watching the news when they showed some coverage of a house fire that started in the family's garage. As they were pushing this destroyed BMW out of the garage, I had a thought...

Ron's ramp is in the garage.
If we had a fire in this end of the house, how would he get out?

Maybe we'll practice more (and longer) on that leg.

But, adrenaline will do wonders for getting you going. I bet (if needed) we could shove that leg on and he could hobble down the front (or back) steps if needed.

Not planning on the need, but you have to keep these things in mind when you have a wheelchair-bound person in the house. How do you handle evacuation emergencies? I don't know and I pray that I never have to find out.

I figure Pooldad will just drop me out a window.

Wheelchair humor - it gets us through the day.

Seriously tho'? House fires are uncommon, so you shouldn't worry - and he has his scooter.....he can ride to the front door and scoot his way out the front door. Don't worry sweetheart. It will be okay.

And a BMW? yeah.

I pray you never have to find out either. I think good thoughts are far less damaging to the endrocrine system. Worrying does bad things to our bodies...sorry, don't know how I got on that tangen...I think horrible thoughts affect my ability to think coherently and say the perfect thing.
Anyway, you'd lift him and carry him out in your bare arms!

It's always good to have a plan - especially in your situation.
