    They don't buy my vehicles either; just the conversion part of it. Which helps a lot.

    Hey pat
    Did you send it?

    Pat,

    My insurance is Bluecross. I contacted them about purchasing the freewheel from you and they said that because your company was not in their system that I must go through a DMD. Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

    Pat,

    I'm in the beginning stages of purchasing a FreeWheel so I contacted my insurance about it and they said that your company wasn't in the "system" and that I need to purchase through a durable medical dealer. Are there any FreeWheel dealers in the Harrisburg, PA area?

    Hey Pat! My son is loving his FreeWheel. I feel like it's giving him his life back. Now that he knows how well it works, he's probably not going to settle for spending all his free time indoors, playing computer games.

    Sorry Pat, after seeing your picture above I guess it must have just been the angle of the picture on your avatar because you don't look like Simon above here LOL. You definately have some cute kiddos there, you're a lucky guy. Those kids look like the kind of kids that pose for those default pictures that already come in the new picture frames when you buy them. Maybe you should look into modeling for them? My wife and I are working on our first child here very soon. (She wants kids, like, yesterday. She is a nurse at Childrens Hospital of Pittsburgh and loves children. Maybe you can give me some tips on keeping them in line from a chair?) Anyways, since we're doing in vitro, i'm sure I'll end up with triplets or something and want to go nuts! Take care buddy.

    Pat - Glad it is healing. We need you to post workouts of the day on a new thread. I noted that you can use the eliptical trainer. For the past for months I can use it if I hold on. It is great. You are in Ketchum, right? Do you know my friends, Muffy Sachs, Sigi and Natasha (yoga instructor)? Muffy is a good masters nordic skier.... just wondering how small the world is....
