Hi everyone,
Peter has recovered from PEG procedure. His speech is slow and slurred. We had a communication aid assessment today and I am very impressed.. It was an initial assessment but impressed by:
Sensitivity of questions
Ability to lend an iPod
Promise to train Peter on 'pro loco' and to develop aid with him
Know this is how it should be but it was so brilliant to get the adequate service when Ai was a bit 'war weary'.
You have to read my rants and whinge a so thought that I would give credit where it is du. I know fm my work with disabled children that this level of service is difficult to get.

I'm still waiting for anything 'adequate' to happen....but then my dad doesn't help by not being honest with me or medical professionals so they leave with entirely the wrong impression....*sigh*
