motability car at last [slight update]

finally got it at last!
it had to be changed from metalic blue to metalic red in the end,as citroen said they didnt have any more blue for months,but had finally got the car on friday.

its a citroen nemo multispace,and is huge in
side-looks smaller on the outside than it is on the inside!
its an awesome smooth ride,a very quiet car,easy to get in and out of.
the seats have modern fabric on them,and being a tall backseat only passenger can say have never been in a more comfortable car-huge leg/head room.the driving staff say exactly the same thing as well
as its got an arm rest for that seat.
the floor isnt carpeted,its plasticy,rubbery sort of which is great as it means am able to help clean it instead of doing what everyone else does and taking it to cleaners.

still waiting for an OT visit to get the crelling harness for the car sorted out,as it has to go through the
m,CQC [the police of uk residential centres/homes] treat the crelling harness as physical restraint and have to get it written down by the OT as a need,so CQC cant complain,otherwise they woud have to be informed everytime it was used in the same way they already have to everytime regular restraint is used.
the only real issue have got with it is the radio,it automatically turns on everytime the engines switched on,a lot of people dont notice radio noise,really need to find a way to keep it turned off without pulling it out.
was given a boquet of flowers along with the car by the citroen garage,which was very nice as not many shops
woud do that,the colours are very nice to look at.

have only got a few photos of it but they identify home to much,and because have gotten into a lot of trouble with photos [though no idea what for],will only stick this one on for now,until can get better ones tomorrow....yea its a shit
looking one of the inside,but will edit some better ones in tomorrow.

Some more photos of the car,finally worthwhile to show relatives as well,mum was wanting to put on her good trousers to come out and see it when was dropped off at the weekend,cant take them [parents] anywhere.

have got a thing about the patterns on wheels,and become instantly tranced by them,so took a photo of the citroens:
theyre a bit shit and plasticy,as far as these things go,they are just wheel trims not alloy wheels,had wanted to get some alloys added on as well,but everyone says they are to expensive and with this being on motorbility there may be some issues over replacing wheels like that as its on contract.

have found some awesome looking alloys,very nice patterns will just make do with looking at all the alloy patterns on the bentleys/mercs/jags or whatever in the sainsburys car park for now.

teeth and other stuff

havent been on since july,it doesnt seem good that cant remember anything apart from this week.

this week finally had to part from an old friend for good.
was in hospital for another round of day surgery again,though this time there wasnt any root canal as far as can remember,had to have first ever tooth removed [and have some fillings done].

the disability dentist that have,was awesome as always and came to visit a few times to discuss what was going to happen,staff had gotten film of the all the routes woud be doing inside the hospital on the camcorder which always helps.
the learning disability nurse from the hospital had come to visit to go through everything,as well to bring a pecs schedule of the visit,and to drop some equipment off so coud get used to them again.
was not feeling very well about it,partly because of uprooting to hospital for the day,but also because had never had a tooth out,and having a severe nerve condition which is always triggered by dental work.

had gone in the minibus with staffs that felt very safe with,and brought quilt and other things to try and feel as at home as possible,luckily was on the top of the op list so it was so early it was when all the kids were being forced out their houses and going to school.
it also meant was well out of it as hadnt slept the night before,which in some ways had helped as did not have a lot of power to be triggered,and slept more than head banged or ticced.

was let in the back way to the ward,and into the same side room that always go in,was also looked after by same nurse that was looked after last time,which was awesome!

one thing that had kept self going,was thinking about when biscuit got some teeth out,she had a few out-if a big wuss of a cat can cope with that then so can an adult.
we all walked down to the room where they do the injection,was very glad they didnt do any of the BP testing till was out.
they had quickly put the canula in hand no messing with putting it in like what usually happens,then they shot some tiny bottles of clear liquid through it,then a syringe full of white liquid,then like that was coming around looking up to staff and nurses,was told was in recovery,then brought back to the side room,felt well out of it.
took ages to come around from it this time,everytime kept getting a bit of strength was just sent back to sleep again,was given morning meds as soon as possible as was not allowed to drink redbull with them before being put to sleep.
had never tasted anything as sickening as redbull and a mouthful of blood,jesus-coud not get rid of that taste,disgusting!!
then after waking up again, for some reason felt like was burning up-extreme,had never had this after a GA before.

was supported over to the chairs,where just rolled over to sleep again-burning up and feeling sick from temperature-staffs and nurses all said they had actually felt quite cold so it was obviously self just being weird.
the nurse got hold of a fan which helped self to cool better,and come back to normal better-that was a very weird experience.
the next day,the dentist rang to see how was doing,she is a very nice person all the staff are at the hospital-am making them a hand made thanks card for all the help they did.

that was wendsday-the pain was quite bad as it had set off the stupid facial nerve,felt like ripping off face it was that bad.
mouth is covered in ulcers,throat is scarred from having the tube down [a usual side effect of GAs for self] which was probably the worst pain,was also dribbling constantly on one side from the local anaesthetic still having an effect-dont know where it all came from.

today is saturday,and its only just feeling a bit better now,but the tooth area has got a bit worse,sisters boyfriend [a dentist] thinks from what have told him over msn it might be infected or 'drysocket' developing,well fuckthat.

in a few months theyre putting a implant tooth in [after it heals],they have to screw that into the jaw,am not allowed the clip on ones because of high risk from head banging/punching and seizures,as they said this woud break all the teeth it was attached to.

-tooth stuff out the way..................have been given some very weird news,am going to be an aunty,as was told by sister this week she is having a baby [due march next year] ,saw her first scan,looks like a proper baby and everything but everyone is saying its not bigger than a hand right now-actually think will like this aunty thing when it comes out.
am planning on spoiling it,maybe get it a little toy every week,and buy it some clothes for when its born.
