For anyone who has ever had to buy any sort of adaptive equipment, you probably know that it's not cheap. The bath chair cost close to $700!!! You might think that it would be covered in gold at that price, but nope…just a bit of plastic and mesh fabric. We wanted to see if we had other options to get the chair faster than appealing with the insurance company (which could take several months) and considered buying it ourselves, but also didn’t want to break the bank. A special thanks to Chrissy, Jake's case manager at the Regional Center for the East Bay for all of her hard work in getting this special equipment approved for funding. We had the bath chair within a couple weeks!
Now that Jacob has his fancy new bath chair, it is sooooo much safer and easier to give him a bath. We’ve tried bathing him in the big tub and also used the shower hose in our big shower. Either way, he still loves his bath time fun!

I should also add that Jake is over his summer cold. Yippee!! We were able to kick this bug to the curb within about 8 days, which is really good because Jake’s colds tend to linger for 2-3 weeks. The little man also has two new teeth – a big bottom molar (thanks to his oral procedure) and another new top molar that just made its appearance.
Colds and teething aside, we're looking forward to a fun week ahead!
