Ok, bit stumped now. The sling worked really well with the electric chair but am not needing to use it so much anymore as I can now drive from my manual chair etc. So for the most part I am much preferring using my manual chair. But, as in everything in life, it has it's downsides. The sling catches on the wheels and because I'm not just pushing a little joystick to zoom around the place and am actually physically exerting myself, Amelie feels heavier in the sling hence it becoming an unsustainable option for more than a couple of hours at a time. So, back to the non pushable pushchair it is for us. Am trying to think of more satisfactory options for the future as I would prefer to have her with me when we're out and about, naturally, as her mother.

Other current focus is our drive is being resurfaced. Normally that wouldn't cause all that much disruption but they have had to take my ramp away until Sunday which allows me access from the house to the outside world to let the concrete set. Joy. Never a dull moment when living with paralysis.

  1. I wish I could visualise your pushchair / wheelchair / sling set up more easily. Have no idea how that all looks...
