Rob decided that having listened for so long about what Kirsty was doing with her horses that he should go and see them for himself. I think he gave his seal of approval.

The Permobil engineer spent most of the day on Wednesday sorting out minor problems – well he seemed to make them easy as Rob had recently experienced going into the standing position and then the chair would not go back into it’s seated mode!! A call to the engineer thankfully revealed an emergency override way to get the chair down. Thank goodness that the call was answered as we were starting to work out how to man handle Rob out of the chair and onto his bed. Rob is now standing for quite long periods- he is able to watch a full half of a rugby game stood up without too many blood pressure or skin problems arising.
Easter break from Uni is coming up and only one Philosophy essay left to complete before a well earned rest is taken.
