Being Optimistic.

French Art.

Ye1sterday afternoon was tiring even thought I had nothing to do except sit and occasionally lift my arm so Harm, from Welzorg could work out at which height I needed them to be.

And Michelle from ARCA, was there too and took notes, also for herself

Sadly Harm could not actually do anything yesterday as the adaptation has made the chair higher and he will have to get arm rests made specially for me.

So that means he has to make an estimate and Amsterdam City Council have to ok this before they can make it.

Michelle has to also put in a document stating the reasons for the arm rests needing to be adapted.

Hope it will not be long as rolling around without proper arm support is not pleasant as my arm gets very tired and I have to stop every few minutes.

Hope it gets done before everyone disappears on their summer holidays

Trying to keep calm anod optimistic that by the end of the month it willl have been done and I can finally roll around in comfort.
Hope that is sooner than I think.

You know you want them to get it right though it would be nice if you could light a fire under their butts. Bureaucracy moves at its own speed.

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick

Gosh, you think it'll take a whole month for the arm rests? That's crazy, I hope they get their asses in gear and get it done quicker! Geez....

Hi Patrick,
If only I could light that fire, I would.

Hi Rain,
Think that a month is a conservative assessment, hope they surprise me.

Thanks both of you for coming by, needed a boost from friends.
What we do not understand is why the two professionals need someone from the council to ok this.
Do they have to have a slice of the pie everytime?
Oh well tryign to keep calm whilst feeling quite angry at this latest road block.

Hi Herrad,
Stayed up late last night reading your earlier posts (back to August 08) and some of Richie's, then on to Steve and Bobrobert's story. Wow. I am so inspired by all of you. What great examples you all set. I can hardly come close to living with illness as gracefully as you do. Thank you for being an anchor in a sea of confusion and chaos.
