I note that you have now ordered an electric wheel chair for N but I am afraid that I have to tell you that the LA has exhausted all options to find an operator which can transport her in the electric wheel chair. There are simply no vehicles available which will be able to do this. ....... this will mean that the family will have to ensure that N's electric wheel chair is transported to and from school.It makes it sound like we're getting her a powered chair for the hell of it, doesn't it? Just to do a few wheelies the playground at lunchtime.
I am so bloody, bloody, BLOODY fed up.
I have written back, but I can't bring myself to put it up here. I've spent a large amount of my time this week writing letters to people telling them how poorly N is and it's just depressing. This batch has included the one to the LEA; one asking Motability to change our policy to an open one, so anyone caring for N can take her places; one to Cerebra asking for funding for her riding therapy.
I feel like a beggar, whining on about how crap our circumstances are, how sick our poor little girl is, how we need all this help and please, please, pretty fucking please, can't you drop a shilling in to the hat?
The Motability van has arrived, though. N likes the tail-lift.
