Don has an appointment with a new specialist today, and we've never been to this particular Doctors' Building. After our appointment over there yesterday to see the eye specialist (by the way, Don's eye is improving), we drove by the new doctor's office. Unfortunately the parking garage is across the street from the actual office building, and there's no cross-over walkway. I thought about the situation off and on all night long, because Don is too weak at this stage to walk any distance at all without sitting down to rest. I finally decided I would call my mom and see if I could borrow a little fishing stool - something small enough I could fold up and carry with us. When I called this morning, she had nothing that would help, but suggested I call a medical equipment rental place here in town and see if they had anything. I had actually gone there a few weeks back and purchased a bathtub seat for Don and found out that the place is owned by a girl that I graduated with. So, I called Jackie this morning and explained my dilemma. She suggested that I stop by and get a transport chair to use for the day. Problem solved! She isn't even charging me for the use of the chair. Isn't God good? I'm so thankful that, even in unpleasant situations, God is still there caring for us.
