William's wheelchair was recently adjusted because he's grown. He's now on some of the last settings for the seating system, and will need a new seating system if he grows between his hips and knees. His weight is currently 25lbs 4oz and 36" tall. He's only an inch shorter than Micah and about 4 lbs lighter.
Also, his wheelchair in the new settings is too heavy for me, or too big. I can no longer lift it into the vehicle (about 3 feet off the ground), so I'm looking into a lift for the exterior of the vehicle to hold the chair so we can still take it with us when we go out. These turn out to be quite expensive, and insurance doesn't cover them at all. Here's a link to the one that best fits our vehicle. The cost for the lift would be about $1700 + $300 for having the hitch installed. So about $2000.
