Good news at last. Lily has been booked into the vet and when they checked she has lost all her baby teeth and adult teeth are all coming in nicely...so one less procedure for her. The vet is also going to clip her toenails and do a closer grooming around her face while she’s asleep (groomer couldn’t do much around the face because she stressed out). I’m sure she’ll be ok but I still have a little PTSD as the last time I left a dog at the vet surgery she never came home. I know it’s silly but it is in the back of my mind. I was referred for in home OT assessment for my new wheelchair. I was told not to ring them, they will ring me with an appt. well, after waiting almost two weeks and hearing nothing (website says..rapid response...), I broke the rule, and rang them. At first they said I didn’t have a referral then they said I needed an admin visit first...when I told them that the OT in hospital has done the initial assessment and paperwork...they managed to find my referral. Frustrating bureaucracy. So next Tuesday the OT is coming to see if my home is suitable for a wheelchair...jeez...used one on and off in the house for 6 years and constantly for the last 5 weeks, had the alterations already done etc. Just need a better wheelchair that raises to help reach high cupboards and tilts when my BP drops, easier transfer to bed etc. Talk about waste of time and money but the “system” is all important. I was told it could take up to 5 home visits. It’s one size fits all. At least I’m finally getting somewhere after asking for a new wheelchair assessment for months. I’m also looking forward to my first private PT session this afternoon. I cancelled my haircut and eye appt and rescheduled for later in the week. It would have been too much. It’s very quiet here..no boisterous, mischievous, sweet little dog.
