#VT – A posting by Tracy on the Charlotte Front Porch Forum caught my attention last week…
Hi neighbors. Many of you know our daughter, who is now a freshman at CVU high school. She’s tentatively scheduled for surgery on November 4th and will be in a wheelchair with her leg out straight for 6-8 weeks.
Are there any individuals, groups, or organizations out there who might be available to help us design and build a ramp to get her into and out of our home? Time is of the essence, we may need a permit, there are codes that need to be met, and our finances are limited because much of the medical care and rehabilitation will not be covered through insurance. At least, these are the things we’re thinking… but this is all new terrain for us.
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
Today’s follow-up by her was titled Appreciation Abounds!
A huge thanks to everyone who responded to our posting about building a ramp in preparation for our daughter’s impending surgery! We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of helpful suggestions, tips, and offers of support and are happy to announce that even though surgery was moved ahead by a week, our daughter is now home, recovering beautifully, and is easily able to get into and out of our home via the new ramp. Special thanks to Dave and Micheline, Rice Lumber, and to our former neighbor, Don. Once a Charlotter, always a Charlotter!
