Two other angels that have come our way, are Dick and Sandy, our lovely neighbors here in Apopka, whom are from Detroit. Where we are staying, is not exactly convenient, nor is it accessible. The parking lot is a 4-5 minute walk from our unit, so I lock the girls in each morning, go get the car, pull into this more convenient 20 minute pull out, go back to the unit, get the girls packed and out the door, and we make our way to the car, and off to therapy we go. For groceries, I have a wagon to load at the 20 minute pull out, and take them as close to the unit as I can get, then take all of the bags out of the wagon, and go down two sets of 3 stairs to the unit.
I only explain all of that because this gift will make so much more sense...Dick became friendly with our family, and would take Nora on golf cart rides in the evening, with he and his dog, Abby. Everyone has a golf cart here, and that is how they get around more conveniently. After a week of knowing Dick, he said shockingly, "You don't have a golf cart?", and I said that we were just renting and it was not something that was provided. He recommended that I go to the golf club and ask if I could rent one for the duration of our stay. Instead, he decided to do this for me. Well, the guy running the golf club said that we would need to pay $150 per month for the cart, and Dick got upset
One other Angel I will make note of is Uncle Ron. All I will say is that he has taken away the stress of me having to move the girls multiple times during our stay. This means so very much to me, that there aren't even words to describe it.
Lastly, but it really shouldn't be last, is Sylwia...Lila's therapist. She has changed our lives, mostly Lila's! Here are two videos...one from Lila walking into Whole Foods today, independently, no assistive devices, and the other at Trader Joes. She insisted on walking herself into Whole Foods from the car, and then did the same at Trader Joes. At TJ's, she proceeded to get a kids cart and roll around the store so steady and strong! Check it out! Happy day :-)
