Today we went back to Kumi, to pick the special CP chair for Michel. I wrote in an earlier blog that we went to the doctor and that they measured Michel to make his special chair. On the picture above you see him sitting in it, there were some things not yet good, his head sometimes falls to one side and he is not always able to keep sitting straight, so he sometimes falls forward. We were also going today to Tororo, to the eye hospital for Catherine, so we were told to come by on the way back to Soroti to pick the chair. So we drove on to Tororo. Catherine was seen by the doctor, she is doing fine, but probably needs an operation when she is 4 or 5 years old. I was told not to worry, I don't think I do that too much, she is born with this eye condition, there is not much we can do about it. It is not getting worse, her view is good, so they might operate the eye muscles when she is 4 or 5 years old. We drove back to Kumi, the road was very bad, everywhere big holes and there was also a lot of rain. So we didn't make it before 5 pm to Kumi, I called them and they told us that they would wait for us!! I was so happy and thankful, we were at the place at 5.30 pm. And they fixed the last things on his chair at the right height. This place is such a nice working place, they do so much with simple things. They make splints, artificial legs, special walkers, special chairs etc. We got the chair and we drove on to Soroti. We arrived there at 7.45 pm, we had been away for 12 hours exactly and most of the hours we had spend driving on those terrible roads!! But what to do, we got our eye review and we got Michel his throne!! I think the day was well spend!!!!
King Michel on his Throne!!!
