Thursday I had a nasty accident, fortunately I was not hurt, the wheelchair had tipped forward when we crossed the zebra crossing by the Hema.
Perhaps it happened because we crossed too fast, the junction is reasonably good, and the pavements at the crossing are nearly flat to the ground.
The wheelchair tipped forward, and had rolled over; fortunately I did not fall directly onto my head.
I rolled out of the wheelchair on my left shoulder and that had protected my head, plus my Amsterdam cap had protected my head.
Ten concerned people helped us, firstly someone who was a doctor checked that my neck was okay, and then Richie got alot of help to get me back in the wheelchair.
The only damage was to the metal support under the table which was badly bent during the fall.
Richie could get me home with much effort, we were so glad when we got indoors.
This means it is not possible for me to go outside with a working surface, which hangs beside the wheelchair, what a calamity, especially because it’s Whitsun here this weekend.
I hope that I can be helped tomorrow, so that I can go outside that would be fine.
Yesterday I had a good experience with Welzorg, when I phoned their emergency service.
First they proposed to come by on Tuesday, when I said then I can not go out for 4 days, I got an appointment between 12 and 17 the same day.
I was happy and a nice fitter called Michel came by at 13.15, he straightened out the bent support, I thanked him and I also rang the emergency number at Welzorg to thank them also.
The woman who I spoke to was astonished and very glad; she said that no one had ever thanked her in all the years which she worked at Welzorg.
I had made her day and weekend.
She said she told her colleagues who were also glad, nice to make people happy by thanking them and showing that I appreciated their help.
