    My wife is pregnant...

    My wonderful wife has been doing my care for the past half-year but is now almost 20 weeks pregnant. The Dr. recently told us she could only continue transferring thru next week.

    If you know of someone that might work please let them know ASAP.
    I'm willing to pay $16+/hour for someone with SCI experience. Mon./Wed./Fri. mornings for about 4 hrs. are most important.

    Thank You,
    Patrick

    How do you transfer? If you are still doing quad pivots, she should not have been doing those even when not pregnant. Get a lift (either ceiling track or floor) and see if her physician won't let her continue to help with this. Even if you need to hire a PCA, it will be easier to recruit if you have a lift. Quad pivots and heavily dependent slide board transfers are dangerous...for anyone.

    Have you contacted your local ILC to see if they have a list of potential PCAs? Have you put up ads local colleges and universities (esp. those with nursing programs)?

    You don't have your PM function turned on surfcat. I put a feeler out to someone I know in that area who may know of people. Long shot, but thought I'd try since I know how impt it is. -- Ami
