Nate hits the pool!

One cool Pool Dude!

Owen keeps an eye on Nate...

Jen came up with a GREAT "MacGyverism" last night that allowed us to get Nate in the pool today. As I mentioned in my last post, we were going to wait until the portable lift was delivered before getting Nate into the pool. Last night, she came up with the idea to put his bath chair on the floor in his bathroom and use his regular ceiling lift to lower him into it. Then we would carry the bath chair to the edge of the pool, put on his BiPAP then get him into the pool like we normally would.
What a GREAT idea...It worked perfectly and as you can see from the pictures, he loved being in the water!
