    Planes, Trains, & Accessible Travel With SMA

    Talk to your doctor to determine if you or your child is fit to travel.

    Traveling with a child is never easy. Traveling with a child in a wheelchair is an extra challenge. The first time Leah flew on an airplane, she was six months old, almost a year before she was diagnosed. We have always been a traveling family and once she was diagnosed, we were both hopeful and determined that it wouldn’t hold us back.

    I have always flown with Leah by myself, just the two of us. Call me crazy; it’s OK, I am. There are some things we have learned that have made it so much easier for us.

      If you know me at all, you know winter is my least favorite season followed by fall. Don’t get me wrong, each season has its benefits, like a frost killing off mosquitoes, but for me the downfalls usually outweigh the upsides of these two seasons. I live in the upper Midwest, I mean about as upper as you can get. Change of seasons is inevitable, so I’m going to do my best to prepare and embrace it.

      One aspect of autumn I despise is that I never know when the last nice day will be. You know, the day where you can walk outside (yes I’m using that term figuratively) and not be chilly. To combat that I already have my various weights of ponchos at hand. My fuzzy socks are next to my thin ones and my long sleeves next to my t’s. I didn’t find a good sale on hand warmers last year, so I’m afraid I’ll be paying full price for that essential.

      I’m not the only one seeking shelter as the temperatures plummet. Bugs do too. Both the viral kind and the ones with 8 legs. Spiders have 8 legs right? Not that I get close enough to count. I’ve heard those creepy creatures don’t like peppermint oil, so I have a mixture ready to spray in every corner and crevice of the house. As for the other type of bugs I referred to I’ve purchased my elderberry syrup, have my germ fighting oils in my diffuser, stocked up on hand sanitizer and have requested a flu shot when they become available. Those viruses are going down!

      Even though I’ll never fully enjoy the beautiful fall foliage, as I know I’ll need to recruit someone to rake up the leaves after they fall, I can at least be prepared. Do you do any prep for the changing seasons? What are your fall essentials?

      That stage of “ is this a t shirt or winter coat day?” is kind of annoying. Lately I’ve been making sure I have my vest on hand. I can get away with it and not a coat at this point.

      My wardrobe is also beginning to change as the weather gets cooler. I’ve started wearing half sleeve shirts, and I’m dreading the day I have to get out a coat.
