    Doug Carpenter oh what a nuisance, maybe a surge. I hope that the hoist company comes to you quickly. How will you manage until then? Xx
    ALS diagnosed November 2017, limb onset. For the 4 yrs previously I was losing my balance.

    I'm staying positive and taking each day as it comes.

        Doug Carpenter If the emergency stop button is pressed in, the hoist battery can't charge, just in case that's the issue, otherwise, hope you get a replacement today. xx

          Thanks Lynne, Linda and Ellie.

          Brand new replacement hoist delivered in under four hours.

          New microwave ordered online from John Lewis.

          Yes, I wondered about threes!

          Fingers crossed if they could.

                Like-for-like swap and I hope it's set up to suit your height? Or, if a different brand, hope your sling is compatible.

                Have fun xx

                  Thanks Matthew

                  Elllie - identical model (Birdie compact) with slightly improved hooks. It's a full body hoist. Sling should be fine, will know in two hours.
