Default How lucky I am!

Forgive me, those not as lucky as I am - but I am bursting at the seams to share my good news. As from next Monday I shall have an electric wheelchair. Yeayyyyyyyyy!
Went to the hospital this am to be assessed and it was little more than a formality. I did not even have to fall over.
Am I lucky or what!
Hope everyone gets this lucky!
Love
Irismarie

Congratulations Iris Marie! Enjoy the fancy new wheels! Should I send you a horn or bell to warn people out of your way!?

The department where they assessed me was SO friendly and kind, not a bit like the horrible neuro dept in Agen where I usually have to go. And when the wheelchair man contacted me to make a appointment (he is bringing several kinds to my house so we can pick the best for me and my circumstances) he said the doctors had felt a lot of joy in being able to say "yes". That is the kind of person I like to know....
I shall never forgive the neuro in Agen for the fact that his very first words to me were "Do you have urinary leaks?"
PS For those who care, the answer was NO))
