I Won't Be Going To Mum's Tomorrow
I have been keeping in touch with Mum (like I normally do) on the telephone and the other day she told me that it wasn't worth me coming down to Blackpool as Dad is still in the ARC, so my time would be taken up just travelling on the bus (which can take about 40-45 mins each way) every day. She said she would much prefer it if I came down once Dad is back home. This should be anytime after next Tuesday as there is another meeting due at the ARC itself, attended by all of those in charge of his care and subsequent release from the rehabilitation centre.
Mum is due to be visited by people who will install ramps at the front and back doors. Besides the outside there needs to be two on the inside as well as the doorways are not level with the floor, if you see what I mean. Once the ramps are there Dad can move about freely in his wheelchair (something that is still on order) and he is about to buy a motorised one from a lady who has a new one but is selling her old one, for some strange reason. Mum said she wants to find out why she's selling her other one as she's worried there might be something wrong with it i.e. a duff battery. I don't think Dad would be too chuffed if he gets in a motorised wheelchair, only to find it packs in on him halfway down the street!
I shall keep you all posted on developments.
