As you all read we lost our villa but thankfully have a new one with lots of help.
Sadly last week Beth's carer annouched she was not coming to Orlando . She was in to help with Beth in the morning and was happy and well. Two hours later i had a text saying she had stinking cold. I text back see you later and she said are you sure, yes. She came in and you guessed it, there was nothing wrong. When we had settled beth for the night i asked if all was ok, yes she said why, well i said about the cold to her, oh you are nit picking. I think not. Any how she threw a strop and said she was not coming. She has since resigned. She went sick with stress (stress my bottom), i have asked for a letter from GP to claim money back and she said no. We have told her there is no way we will pay for when she should be in Orlando (she had to give a months notice). Yesterday her sick note ran out but did not get a new one, just a letter from a company for a reffrence . We got in contact and said we would fill in if she agreed to leave as of last week (save us nearly £900), told her it was her choice but if she worked else were and did not agree we would take her to tribunal (had backing of Acas and legal team for insurance company). Well she agreed and then texted to say tell Beth to have fantastic holiday, thankfully had mate with me who told me to rise above and delete it, which i did.
What do these people want, she was paid over the top had meals bought for her and a fantastic holiday all paid for.
On top of it Beth has stopped eating and is being pump fed. Her VNS has started to cause her voice problems again. We had to turn back on as no medication is working and they can not do anything more for her seizures. We now need to decided were we go from here. I am a great believer in quality over quantity but she is my baby and i know the worst could happen.
She had big issues with her wheelchair and thankfully we got emergency appointment. The chair was twisted which i have been saying for weeks, but hey i am just her mum what do i know. Its all been sorted and she needs to attend in January for other adjustments but she is happy in her chair again. Her left hip has come out of its socket again which is very sad because she had major surgery on it in 2000. We will just monitor and manage with pain relief as Beth and surgery do not go together and we will not even think of more surgery.
So there you go. I am past most of it now as you get. I am just back to worrying about beth on the flight and driving for the first time in America, believe me it feels so good just to worry about these.
