about dd2 claim. got a leter this morning saying 'sorry we havent reached a decision yet' so i wanted to know how much longer it will be. her claim has been with a decision maker since 23rd april, so the man on the phone says i should have a decision in a week.

Peter is doing fine. we have a meeting tomorow with his SW, about our hours for care.

ooo i caught a bit on tv yesterday about how much fluid people on dialysis can drink, only 500ml, how did u cope?

this claim has been going on since feb. it was turned down initially but i have asked them to look again, which was at the end of march.

I was allowed two paper cups of fluid a day and it was terrible tbh we used to get fruity ice cubes to suck whilst on the machine and I used to get really excited about them!DLA never seems to go to those who really need it keep plugging away at them and they will sort it eventually.I had my check up today and consultant says my kidney is really working like a normal persons and this has greatly reduced the strain on my heart I really hope peter gets some good news soon xx

so that was just over 300ml then? great news about your kidney working better.

just keeping fingers crossed for a decision soon. i filled up the car today, and will pop a tenner in my little car, once thats all gone thats it till weds next week. Peters car drinks so much petrol, but he cant fit in my little car.
