How many hands?

does it take
To make a decent mould
for what we all hope
will be a more comfortable wheelchair?
If that shape's correct, it's no wonder she stopped tolerating the old one.

We saw wheelchair services in May. They suggested we try a Triton. The Triton arrived for trial back in July. We liked the Triton, but it needed a moulded seat for Little Miss Asymmetry. Yesterday was the first moulding appointment. We go back in four weeks for the mid fit. And then two weeks later for the final fit, by which time the Triton which "oh yes, it's definitely been ordered" will hopefully be here. Five months after the initial appointment. Thirteen months after Mog started having such big problems with her spasm. And apparently the service has been improved by the recent changes. If this is an improvement, I don't like it.

I hope the mold for the new wheelchair helps Mog a whole lot.

Praying that all the waiting and appointment will turn into a wonderful helpful chair for a sweet girl in the end.
Glad the service has been "improved"! I'd hate to see what it was like before.

Hugs & Prayers

I hope the new mould helps (and they pick the right materials for Mog too).

[and that you both weren't stuck in that room for too long]
