There are several things wrong with my chair. I am really happy that I have an appointment on Monday with a technician our of Portland. I have described all that has been happening and he is going to take my chair into the shop to fix it. He is currently looking for a loaner chair to leave with me so he can work on my chair.
As far as what is wrong with the chair. The control arm isn't working correctly, the battery won't hold a charge, and the left front wheel is bent out of shape. The whole thing needs a revamp. It looks promising now. There is a way to put it in neutral so I can push it into the house. No one ever told me that before.
About the falls. I can't get up unaided, but I can climb up on anything that is relatively stationary. I often catch myself before I hit the floor. However one of the falls earlier this week bruised my leg so bad that it is black all around the calf and the pain is great enough to wake me in the night. Last night I didn't sleep for very long because of the pain.
Gloria put me to bed this afternoon and I slept until almost eleven this evening. That was the best rest I've had all week. Now I have enough energy to get moving again. There is still so much to get done. I need boxes and can't get into town to get them. That is the way it goes isn't it.
I wonder when the mechanic will be here to fix my car. I am anxious about that. He said today, but to the best of my knowledge he didn't get here. I'll figure that out later.
Gotta get busy now. See you later.
