Queen for a day...

Today was such a cool day. I met my new urologist who is actually a doctor and very knowledgeable. I was a little nervous but it turns out that he not only has several patients who are in chairs but gave me several pamphlets on people in chairs who got together and opened up by company and they also give advice. I seem to always have a problem with my SP tube or the tape making blisters on my tummy so my new caregiver brought me some tubular gauze and it seems to be working great so I told the doctor about it and he said that he is going to forward the information to a couple of his patients that have the same problem.
After we left the urologist we went to Woodworm party store. Since I'm in a chair I decided to be a queen for Halloween and convert my chair into a throne. My aunt went by the party store to see if they had a queen costume and they said that they didn't but they took my number. A couple days later a lady called and said that they had ordered a costume for me and that it was in and that the owners would like to give it to me, no charge. When I got there and saw it I just couldn't believe it, it was so beautiful... I couldn't help but get a little teary eyed. That was such a sweet thing to do. The only thing that they asked is that I give them a picture of me in the costume.
My cousin Rich is starting to build shelves in the garage. I feel bad for him because it is still kind of cluttered but I'm really going to try to go through some of the stuff this weekend so he has room to work. He is even going to make me a little workbench that I can put my toolbox under, I love my tools.
My uncle and aunt invited us over for lunch and of course it was a great and then Brodie and I took a trip to the lighthouse, to me it still is breathtaking.
