Hello everyone. So... Kingston was supposed to make his wish last Saturday but for good reason the foundation postponed until this weekend. He is so excited and now that the date is getting closer he is changing his wish daily. He cracks me up, some of the things his imagination can spit out. Today he mentioned a snapdragon (mobile electric chair for standing and getting to the floor independently.) so he can run faster than bubba ,he saw a youtube video of a little boy named Charlie and has been raving about him and his (walk like bubby wheels) ever since, It makes me happy to know that he is at peace knowing that most of his mobility needs will be met by wheels....... moments later he was watching cartoons wishing to go to dragon land from dragon tales, any commercial with Disneyland sets him off, and lets not get into pirates and neverland. Its a adrenaline rush for me to just keep up with it all. :) He rocks!!
I'm happy to announce that I contacted the company in Sweden who put me in touch with the direct U.S. source. They let me aware of a hybrid chair that isn't advertised that is 7 lbs lighter than the bambino itself. It called the hybrid bambino and is a perfect match for Kingston and will be able to grow with him, and one day turn into the bambino pictured above. How cool is that? It retails for 1,500 more than the bambino itself but..... They have amazingly gave me a discounted price that brings it down to what vendors are selling the bambino for. So he will be getting the better/lighter/more valued chair at no extra cost from my original quote from a vendor. I'm so excited!! As soon as my gofundme check arrives which will be any day now, They will start the process of getting him into his customized fit for him wheelchair.
I just can't thank everyone enough for making it possible for my child to have the best. It will make a world of difference in the lives of the entire family.
I will update everyone with the wish he chooses and keep you all up to date about his chair :)
