Today, I had the day off school. This morning I had an appointment at Northwick Park Hospital and this afternoon I had an appointment with Harrow Wheelchair Services. I only had a few hours in between the appointments so it was kind of pointless for me to go into school between. As soon as I would have got there I would have had to leave!
This mornings appointment went really well and this afternoon at the Wheelchair Services Centre, it went even better. My wheelchair should be ready in four weeks time, though a few adjustments have to bed made to our home to make it a little more ' wheelchair friendly'. I am so pleased as it will make my life so much easier.
It was just my mum and I today as my brother was at school, my sister at university and my dad at work. It was nice to spend some quality time with my mum - even if we had many appointments to go to.
Today I was rather energetic. I didnt get tired as much and my legs didnt feel as though they were about to break afterwards. I am so glad that I am making progress. I really feel like step by step, I am building my health up.
Steps. Life is full of them. Big steps. Small steps. Steps back. Steps forward. Steps up. Steps down. But each step leads to another. Remember that.
