Title

It costs not a penny more to laugh.

Body

Nearly 18 months ago, I was given a small foldable power wheelchair by one of the members of this site. It has been very useful and much appreciated. Its design is more suitable for the flat corridors of a hospital or clinic. It is not so suitable for outdoors at all. I have actually been thrown out of it a couple of times; the last time, tipping completely backwards, hitting the back of my head.Anyway, I have a holiday planned to start at the beginning of October. Two weeks in Maderia. That is one hilly place. I thought that it'd be sensible for me to upgrade a notch or two.

I'm holding out hope you have to donate that thing to someone else.  And that they, in turn, will also have to donate it eventually.

Supaguy, as I've said before, you really are! laughter IS free and much better than the alternative!i really hope you are unlucky enough to be able to walk when your chair arrives! And, if you are, I think laziness is still fine!Jane

MS symptoms from 2001, DX RRMS in 2008, following, a change of hospital who sent me for an MRI, precipitated by some sight loss. Took Interferons, on and off. Prescribed  chemo infusions to slow pro

Hi Supaguy,If you are still needing the wheelchair when you start on your holiday that's OK.  Just remember to use lots of sunscreen with homosalate and octisalate while you are away.   That way you may, like some experimental mice, be walking nicely when you get home!Cool
