NDIS meeting and the best toastie in Brisbane

I am very against taking pictures of food some one is eating, just to have a discussion about it. Does not make sense to me.

So I took a picture of my “getting ready for another f&@king NDIS preparation” meeting meal. A coffee and a toastie to mentally prepare.

This is my third such meeting to prepare for Abbeys NDIS interview, that is due to happen by July 2018. Total hours so far are about 18. I still have at least 3 more meetings to go. I will be very well prepared, and Abbey for the first time in her life will be well funded and well supported.

Today’s meeting was with her physios to plan for and organise quotes for equipment, home modifications and therapy appointments. My goal is to take a quote of everything my girl will need to the NDIS planning meeting.

The meeting was a heap of fun, the ladies are awesome and very knowledgable. They also push me to consider other possibilities for Abbey. How awesome is that?

I must give credit to The Eva St Privateer for helping me zone in, ready for meeting. Their toasties and coffee are the best in town!

On 13 December 2017, I decided to start the 365 day countdown again for a couple of reasons:
– there is so much happening for Abbey and our family, I cannot succinctly put it into a weekly post.
– I am having a lot of trouble keeping everyone updated on our adventures. 
– I have missed meeting new people through this process.
– and I think it’s good for my own mental health.

I hope you will join me for another 365 days sharing my life as Abbeys carer. I can promise it’s not going to be bland!

Today I start with some very bland reading to continue my research for the NDIS. A meeting with our social worker suggestion I go through these thrilling documents to understand what is on offer, then structure our goals for Abbey.

My Abbey is great today. Her ability to walk assisted is coming back, to her great enjoyment. She had a rough week of seizures and walking was a little difficult.
