My new wheelchair is delayed

Filed under: Disability, Health, Life, What were they thinking?!, Wheelchair — Kim & Sophie @ 11:11 pm

sadI’ve been counting down the days until my new wheelchair is suppose to arrive!  I’m so excited about it and it will be sooo great having a wheelchair that actually fits me!  I’ll even be able to use both arms at the same time!  Right now I always have to hold myself up with one arm while I use the other one. 

Today I found out that instead of my wheelchair being shipped on May 7th, it’s delayed and wont be shipped until the 14th!  I’ve been waiting since May 2nd and I’m getting really inpatient!  Today within an hour I got two differnt stories from two different people at Sportaid, and I have vowed to never order anything else from them again!  I’d rather spend more money on something and have it ordered and delivered on time without any problems and with even half decent customer service than deal with Sportaid again!

So, hopefully I will have my wheelchair by May 16th.  (It will take a day or two to ship), and everything is ok!  Wish me lots of luck!  (I have a feeling I’m going to need it)! 

On a better note, I should get my Roho Quadtro Select cushion today!  (It is technically today because it’s 1:54am)!  It is rubber, and since I’m allergic to latex I’ll have to be very careful not to actually touch the cushion or any rubber parts, but once the cover is on it should be fine.  I couldn’t sit on the old Roho cushions because they were too unstable, but this cushion has four air compartments so it should work.  (Again, wish me luck)!  I’ll write an update about the cushion when I get it, and with any luck I’ll be writing about my new wheelchair in less than 12 days!
