Small miracles...


Thursday, May 02, 2013

Today was a much better day than yesterday! I had gone to the dentist and had a tooth pulled. After the appointment I had ridden my mobility scooter to a local market area to get some fruits and veggies. On my way back to the place where I was to get my van ride back home, I got half way across a busy street and my scooter decided to stop running! (DEJA VU!) It was not the battery this time, there was something major wrong with it! A couple of people passing by helped me get back on the side walk. I sat there trying to figure out what I was going to do. If I couldn't get back to the dentists office, my reide would leave me there! I called the van services and sat on hold for more that 20 minutes. I wa very upset and worried! While I was sitting there waiting on hold, this woman came up and asked me if she could interveiw me for a story she was doing about antidepressants. (How did she know I was on them? I guess the scooter???) It was actually funny and pathetic at the same time. Here I was, upset and trying to get someone on the phone to help me and there is this lady hooking me up with a microphone and videotaping the interview! (All I wanted to do was scream!)
Somehow I got the scooter to run again and I went back to catch my ride. Luckily, I hadn't missed it!
I knew the scooter had to be fixed. I got on-line to get the number of the Scooter Store (where I bought the Scooter) only to find that The Scooter Store has claimed bankruptcy and is no longer helping cash customers! Great, just what I needed on this awful day! The scooter is still under warranty, so I contacted the manufacturer to see if they could help. The woman I spoke to said she would call me today an let me know what they could do.
I am stranded without the scooter. I can only walk very short distances due to lung disease and dizziness from my brain tumor. This scooter had been my life saver! I can shop and do laundry and things like that! But now with no scooter, I am home bound. Small miracles... the manufacturer is going to fix it. They are coming to get it tomorrow! I should have it back in a week or so!!! WOO! HOO!
I feel much better now and I can get back to getting healthy!

    Oh my that was something to worry about. I wonder if the entire Scooter Store company has gone belly up or just the store you bought your scooter at. And so strange to have an interview in the middle of everything! It is God's blessing that they are going to fix it and it will be back soon. I am housebound as well, and Medicaid doesn't pay for scooters only an in house wheelchair, which I already have. Hope you'll be out and about and blogging about it soon.

    Oh goodness . . . that is so worrying. And - so strange, to be asked to do an interview in the middle of all your troubles! Glad to hear they are going to fix it - and take care of you. I was worried you would be stuck without it.

Hope it comes soon - so you can enjoy your freedom!
