Travelled to Birmingham QE earlier to see the consultant to see if I'm suitable for the assessment. Took over an hour to get there so knackered before I started. HE bad at the moment so difficult to understand what was happening (good thing my wife was there). Anyway, Doc says he'll recommend me to the assessment team. Trying not to get our hopes up too much but as many of you can testify, that's impossible. Will hear within a couple of weeks when they want me in (for the assessment). Hope it's soo as feel worse each day now. Fingers crossed eh?
