Won my dla appeal

I've been fighting for dla for 16 months appeal was cancelled twice so the 3rd time was last Thurs we had been waiting for my esa med report but it didn't turn up lucky enough there was a pp frm dla there my rep and her were called in2 the appeal room and the panel told the pp 2 chase up the med report and see if there was enough on it 2 make an award for dla coz im on the support group of esa b4 the appeal would hav 2 go ahead well my rep told me it would take a week and she would fone me when she heard from the pp.so 2 day my rep foned me 2 say that I won middle personal care and high rate mobility I nearly fainted.apparently in very rare cases the appeal panel will do this I feel so lucky so people don't ever give up on what ur entitled 2 its been a long road with lots of tears but I did it thanks 2 my sdlp councillor xox
