The Work Will Give Me Some Independance.
Autumn seems to be here already, the weather was briefly sticky and muggy on Saturday and Sunday which made it very difficult to maintain a good sitting position in the wheelchair.
Rain was forecast for 4 days from Saturday, it did not happen it just looked like it might happen any minute.
There was never very much sunshine though it was bright not like today which started with pouring rain.
Marleen hates seeing rain she does not mind being if the park in a downpour but going around the block in drizzle is not acceptable at all.
Think she will be very happy today as Richie put on his waterproofs and took Marleen and Spike to the park first thing despite the rain thrashing down.
Hope he gets back real soon as I think that I need to get to the toilet and shower real quick, just had an enormous spasm that went on for minutes.
A horrible intense spasm which had my legs banging against the bottom of the bed table, luckily Richie has wrapped some foam around the base so my legs are protected.
Tomorrow two men will arrive at 10 am and will be here all day putting sensors up for my new gizmo.
I will be able to do things such as turn on the lights, turn on the TV, the DVD player and open the doors as well as open the front gate.
All can be done with a little control box which is either by my bed or on the wheelchair it will also enable me to make phone calls without any problems.
It will be very good for me just dread the idea of two men being here for two days putting up sensors.
Oh well sure the reality will be a lot better than the prospect of the event and the result will be good for me, it will give me some independance.
