Boy! Kevin really hated the beach!! It took me a half hour to get him to even get out of the car and into the special wheelchair that would go in the sand. He despised it on site and just wouldn't budge. To be truthful, we actually left the beach and were going home (everyone else stayed - just him and I left) and when he saw how upset I was that we weren't staying - he opted to turn around. I shouldn't have bothered though, he was just miserable the whole time and we left within an hour. And let me tell ya - it ain't easy pushing him over the sand for just 45 minutes! My arms still hurt!
So, until he can walk - he will not be going back to the beach at all.
Tomorrow we were going to go to Busch Gardens, but when I picked up a power chair he said he wouldn't get in it. I told him he either got in it or stayed home. He says he's staying home. Damn! We are going to be so limited now because he realizes so much more. Frankly, I know he's just embarrassed to be in a different kind of wheelchair than his normal one, but it's something he is going to have to adjust to.
And now I need to get back to unpacking...
