ours r shockingly behind, and im not one to wait , but i think i might complain though. coz im not the only one waiting for things, and we need a seat for the bath for her, which ive seen but they r not pocket money prices! i dont mind having to contribute towards the cost or even paying in instalments but cant do the whole lot.

bluebird amy is funny as,, ive told her to say pardon if she is asked her age and then mummy will tell them,, she did say once though but u said I was 4 today!

Keep badgering em.They'll soon get their asses in gear if you persist.Personally i'd bring the local MP in to play.That'll sort em.I had to bring our MP in to play last year when the social services weren't taking any notice of us.They soon responded when he contacted em and were falling over emselves to help us.Thats what MP's get paid for to help folks in the community.Try it.Good Luck

i hope the link works,, this is our "loan" commode while the OT argues , john she has already got our MP involved because shes fed up with having to get loan equipment for patients, i should hear with in the next few weeks, amys loving her commode and she loves it as a chair , its amazing the difference, i dont have to empty it as the bucket is sooo much bigger than the potty after every single time she uses it which means im getting more sleep and so is she with out me bashing around.

Shes also not wet the bed at all since friday, given her more confidence with going to the toilet at night and last night she had used it her self, so i got up to lift her and lets just say the contents was a bit fresh! so i got more sleep!

easier to clean, easier to use just wonderful!
Good girl, Amy. Well done.
Well done Amy,
Bluebird xx
