    Thanks for your comments so far. Ellie’s left hip is fused to her femur bone at a certain angle (I’m not sure of the exact angle, but more than 100 degrees) so it is not comfortable for her to sit for a long period of time. But if a Segway is out of the question, we’d have to consider a wheelchair, possibly with a leg rest (but at a certain angle, not straight out). Let me get some exact details of angles etc. Another suggestion has been to use a handbike, so I’m also looking into that, although they are so much bulkier… I’m so grateful for all your suggestions and good wishes as I’m so determined to make this trip a success for her!
