Just got the call we have been waiting for a month now, finally I have an appointment for Thursday 29 October at 3 pm.
Everyone who was here for the first appointment on 17 September will be here again then, Michelle, Harm from Welzorg, Elwin, from Summit, Ludwine and of course Richie and I.
The newly made seat and back rest will be attached to my chair and I will be sat in it so Elwin can adjust it if that is needed.
Ludwine, the ergo therapist from the RCA (Rehabilitation Clinic Amsterdam) will be here to check everything that Elwin does and to make sure that my posture is correct and the seat provides me with the support that I need.
I will then keep the chair so that I have the opportunity to use it, to test drive it for awhile, then Elwin and Ludwine will be around again to check if there are any issues, anything that needs adjusting.
Really hoping that all goes well and that it will be enough time for me to get used to sitting for long enough by the time 21 November comes so that I can go to the Punk gig and see Peter and The Test Tube Babies.
Have to be able to sit for at least three hours by then without any red marks appearing on my bum.
We know that 45 minutes had no effect, so here is hoping that 3 hours sitting is possible by the 21st November.
Really hoping we can still go to the gig.
Yippee the sun is shining and when the clouds go by there are the blue skies again.
What a wonderful phone call that was from Michelle just now.
Happy Days are really here again and now I am looking forward to going out in November.
