    Dancing at sons wedding

    I am a t11-12 complete, but my son was getting married this past June and I really needed to be able to dance with him. I bought the leg braces on Amazon. He locked the knees and stood me up. It was amazing to be able to do this.The video is too large

      Good for you! My daughter, Natalie, got married over the Memorial Day weekend. I was kind of dreading the "father-daughter" dance segment of the reception. But we winged it and it turned out great. I popped a few wheelies (that's why she's giggling) and we had a good time.

        That had been our plan and had done that at a different wedding, but I really wanted to stand with him. He was strong enough to stand me up and then my other who was married 3 years ago cut in. The song he chose was do I make you proud. Not quite sure who was the proudest one that day.

            Glad everything came out ok. You can brake bones from not standing after a long time in chair.

                Get an Easystand. I try to use mine at least 4 days a week. Great for my spasticity.

                    When I was called up to the dance floor as the father of the bride I had to use the moment to defer this special moment To my own father as my literal stand-in and I became spectator .

                        Glad it worked out for you. My gf frequently talks about getting married. I quietly keep pushing for eloping somewhere if we ever do... the thought of not being able to dance that first dance with her ?normally? just kills me ... it?s the little things like that that Kill me the most about SCI. I?m glad you got to have your moment with your son

                          Rjc I just bought leg braces off Amazon, then he locked them at the knees and stood me up. Once i was up it did not take much to keep me up. Have a guy stand you up and then she can slide into his place and allow you to dance. It was so worth the money spent on them
