    Hi John;

    I had some quotes for a similar job with man with a van, they were about £60. Has it charged up OK and have you had it out?

    Love Terry

    Terry,

    I knew that as it's been standing unused for quite a while the batteries might not accept a charge, I've arranged for the Ottobock agent in Hemel Hempstead to come round and fit new batteries and adjust it for my height and build, this won't be for a week or so.

    Still I'm really spoilt at the moment as my brand new Gerberit toilet is being fitted so I will have more boy's toys to play with.

    John

    I'm jealous of your loo John;

    It is nice to have time to play with things before you really need them.

    Love Terry

I've also got builders in halfway through a 2-3 week job converting the bathroom. So at last I'm getting organised for the challenge to come or should I say the challenge that is upon me now.

    It was very kind of Bill's family to think of us and they are busy fundraising to provide further help and research into a cure which we all hope will come soon, support them if you can.

    Barry, if I find there comes a time when I no longer have a need for it I'll offer it to you but it is quite a beast and there is no way it will fit your lovely new Audi Q3.

    I've not been around much lately but am following developments and would like to pass on special greetings to Katrina and Dave I'm thinking of you both in what must be difficult times.

    All the best,

    John
    Hello John,

    I'm pleased you have received the chair from Bill's family. I hope you get it charged and running soon. I have been looking at portable wheelchairs or scooters to fit in the car but I know I will soon need a wheelchair for the home and keep thinking that each time you get something to make life easier, time marches on and you end up behind the 8 ball. Of course these thoughts should not sway us from getting the best out of life.

    Barry
    Iím going to do this even if it kills me!
