A Pleasant Surprise.

This morning we were pleasantly surprised by the support cushion being delivered by DHL as had been promised by Quattron.

Great to get it back today, I was delighted as I am so used to being let down by mobility aids suppliers and sadly by others too like my ex case manager, but not my current one who is excellent.                                              .

So today was a pleasant surprise for us both, good to get the cushion back, it has been adapted and seems to give me more support.

I shall test it out by using it and making a note of anything that needs adjustment, right now the support cushion seems to be good.

Which is brilliant, Richie had me propped up pretty good but could not totally recreate the support cushions.

So it as nice to have the huge cushion back today, it has been expanded at the sides which is good, as before it was modified the cushion kept slipping away which meant I  would keep flopping over to the left.

It not pleasant to find myself slowly collapsing, sometimes I have ended up lying on my left side.

Despite the support cushion Richie still has to adjust me, the cushion helps but can’t hold me rigidly in place, it is good though as it allows me to sit and write.

So glad you have a better support cushion and of course Richie to fine tune and monitor. Have a great week, almost weekend. Love, Mary

I am glad that you finally have your cushion and that it seems to be working out for you. There's nothing better than being able to sit up comfortably while you use your laptop. Hope you're having a nice Summer day! it's going by so fast -- even though we're having good weather now, it sure seemed to take a long time to warm up. (and, no, I'm not going to complain that it's too warm!)
