Lonnie has the great opportunity to get a computer that will allow him to communicate via voice text, phone and internet. This device is call a DynaVox. It will hook both to his wheelchair and bed. It is activated/used by Lonnie using his eyes. He will be able to communicate with people without my assistance. This will give him the opportunity to have some form of freedom/independence that he is craving. You all know how much the computer means to him and so you can just imagine how excited he is to get to have one.
Heres our problem. The computer cost 13,000. The insurance will only cover 10,000. We lost VA funding so we no longer have that income/insurance. It's hard for me to ask and you know how important it is to Lonnie when he wants me to ask everyone who's wanted to help if they would like to donate to cost of the remainder we have to pay.
It would mean a lot to both Lonnie and myself. If you have any questions, please contact me and I will answer your questions if I can.
Thanks so much for caring.

Lonnie and Bob hung out and watched all the "pretty ladies" while Jen and I got dive certified. Of all the things I thought I wouldn't do, that was one of them. It was scary at first when you think you should not be breathing under water and then you see how incredibly beautiful it is and think how could I not do this before. We had some fantastic shots of underseas animals. Enjoy the pictures.
Katherine and Baylee had a blast in the swimming pool. Baylee has definitely been watching Nemo too much because she was turning into a little fish. She loved the water and the pool.
Here is the Jenkins' family having a little pool time.
All in all, we all had a great time and a lot of adventures. We took a ton of pictures, bought dopey stuff, met nice people and in all made great memories.

Cody and Jana had a great time. Check out the peacock Blog for their scuba photos.
I think Lonnie and Bob have the best adventures.
