Despite the sudden appearance of a nasty sinus infection here at PSS headquarters- we're so pleased that we've all made it through September!
In co-creator news... Kris made it safely through Hurricane Florence evacuation and she and the floofs have arrived safely back at home with only minimal damage from the storms, for which we're all very grateful.
Here in Texas, I've had a very busy September! My godmother whom I've lived with since 2007 got married and moved to a condo with her new husband. Which means for now, it's just me and the animals in the house- getting by the best we can. My disability appeal is still... happening? I'm choosing to go with no news is good news (although I do have a phone confirmation that it IS in progress, so that's a big relief). I'll know on the 10th if my checks got caught to continue with auto-deposit or if I have to go BACK to the office to have the next one issued manually... at which point I'll also have to RE-Sign up for medicare so cross your fingers that it goes smoothly and that isn't a necessary step.
In happier news: I FINALLY HAVE A POWERCHAIR!! I've been looking and shopping for chairs for at least a year and a half- but never bit the bullet. I tried fundraising for one last year (or the year before?) but fell short of my goal, and ended up having to use the acquired funds for other necessary medical expenses at the time. But after finding the perfect chair, and a few very frank discussions with my doctor- I gathered my courage at asked for it as a birthday gift from one of my dads. And he was kind enough and generous enough to go for it. It arrived a little over a week ago and has been absolutely INCREDIBLE. (Of course I promptly got the sinus infection from hell so I still haven't used it as much as I'd like yet!)
I ended up going with a Fold&Go wheelchair (which I'll be linking in the featured shops section below this month) and for November's homepage I'll work up a comprehensive review of the chair since I'll have had more than a month to really put it through its paces. But in just the short time i've had and used it- it has made such an amazing difference in my ability to do things on my own especially out of the house.
Other than that- it's still mostly survival mode around here for both Kris and I- which is part of why this month's update is running a bit behind schedule. As always, we thank you for your patience! And if you're new to PrettySick Supply- WELCOME! Let us know if there are resources you need that aren't here or that you've had trouble hunting down. After all, ultimately that's what we're here for!
--Have a terrible photo of me in my new chair the night it arrived... hopefully better photos to follow next month!
