Summer is Slipping away While I Remain a Prisoner of the System
Power Wheelchair's sudden loss of power has left me housebound a it now lacks the power to climb my ramp. Beautiful summer weather outside, yet I remain a prisoner indoors.
If your only pair of shoes fell off your feet, how long would you be willing to wait to get another pair??
It has been three weeks now since my wheelchair repair service inspected my Quantum powerchair and determined my power issues were due to a malfunctioning joy-stick control unit.
It took the first week to place the order for a replacement for they don't stock this most standard part for the most common of power wheelchairs.
Again I ask --- in a business world where orders can be faxed at near the speed of light --- and overnight courier services exist, why was I told that it would take an additional two weeks for the parts to arrive. I just don't get it!
Summer is slipping away and I'm still waiting...
