To the Summit.
Slept really well again and again was woken up by containers being emptied and a concert of drilling from across the canal.
Wanted to sleep until 10 am and wake up feeling refreshed to cope with the 13.30 appointment with Michelle, from ARCA, the Council advisors and Elwyn, an employee from Summit.
Summit is the company that will be carrying out the adaptions to my electric wheelchair; they will make a mould of my body and use that to make the back and seat of the chair.
We do not know whether they will make the mould today or not, hope they will as that will speed up the process considerably if that is so.
I am very nervous about this appointment; probably it will be an appointment where Elwyn, from Summit will tell us all about how they make the mould.
It is a very grey and overcast day today, still quite warm, mind you I did have goose pimples on my arms.
Normally that means it is too cool, since the MS is means nothing and everything as my temperature gauge has become quite dysfunctional.
I can be cold in a warm place, when I was going out I would have to put a jacket and scarf on even in the heat.
Would feel every tiny breeze, the breezes that I used to enjoy as a welcome relief from the heat were like arctic winds to me now.
Last summer the only time I only had a thin jacket on was on June 31 when the temperature was above 30 degrees.
Even then the breeze was too cool for me.
Trying now to tell myself that I have nothing to feel nervous about but can feel my shoulders are starting to feel solid, everything is clamping up.
Have to do my best to try to relax, think that I will post this and do some arm exercises which should loosen my shoulders and arms.
Richie is making soup which will be very nice to drink just before they get here.
Have a good day everyone, wish us luck with Summit.
