Great News Today.

Ton Peeks, the brilliant nurse who has been visiting since I have been in bed, came to inspect the wound and it is official the wound has finally closed nearly 14 months later.

We are very pleased and happy about this good news and so is Ton Peeks, who has supported us wonderfully well.

Happy days, sadly my chair is nowhere near being donw, seems the paperwork has not been sent to the Council yet.

Shame as I,we were hoping to get good news about the go ahead being given this week for the adaptions to be made and fitted on to my chair.

I need to practise sitting and at first can only sit for an hour at a time, hope that the goahead will happen soon so that I will have the chance to go to the gig on 21 November.

Going to try my best to remain optimistic.

Great news.Can you call someone who could advocate for you? It is essential to your continued health successes, i.e. detrimental to your health to hold this up. Best wishes, Mary

Hi Rain,
Thanks for your yahoo.
Could not believ it when Ton said it has healed up, had almost stopped expecting to hear those words.

Hi Tara,
And thanks for your hoooray too.
We are very excited too.

Hi JC,
Thanks, who knows why they have not the paperwork yet, guess it is because I am just a number their list.

Hi Rhapsody,
Thanks, I shall certainly do my best.

Hi Kelli,
Thanks, you are right it is fantastic, it has been a long 14 months.

Hi Stephany,
It's brilliant isn't.

Hi Mary,
Thanks, sadly no-one can advocate for me, the person I heard it from Michelle, my consultant should be making sure eveything gets through as quickly as possible but she has not.

Thanks for all your visits and congratulations we are both very happy today.
Looking forward to progress on the wheelchair.
Have a good day tomorrow.

After being awake for now nearly 18 hours, it was of great pleasure to read about your happyness. Would like to wish you all the best, enough patience, to get what you deserve.

Herrad said...

Hi Robert,
Thanks for your visit and good wishes.
Hope I can remain patient, as I really want to get moving.
Have a good Thursday.

Terrific! I am happy for you! Finally healed, yay! Frustration abound with you over paperwork but I look forward to hearing about your forays outside!

Webster said...

Oh I am SO glad the wound is completely healed. It stinks that getting your chair is taking so long, but use this time wisely. Develop your core strength by sitting an hour a day so you'll be ready to go out in the chair for longer periods of time than that!

You know, it's fun to linger at coffeehouses and restaurants! You want to be comfortable doing that!!

WooHoo for you!! You are an inspiration, Herrad. (Richie is too, of course, as he has been there every (so to speak) step of the way.

Amelia said...

Oh Herrad, that is just fantastic news!

Good on you for being so patient and strong, you are an inspiration to us all!

Love & big big hugs!

Herrad said...

Hi Sherry,
Looking forward to going out and telling you all about it soon.

Hi Webster,
Thanks also for your advice, I am sititng up higher in the bed than before and agree with you that I need to do this more and more each day.
Loking forward to lingering outsside in my snug winter clothes.

Hi Amelia,
Thanks for your cheers, you too are an ispiration.

Thanks all of you dear friends for coming around and boosting me with your loving and supportive comments.
