Thanks - will try to focus on the positive.
However the odds are against us - on Monday my daughter broke her arm badly and ended up in surgery!
Although it is her left hand she is finding things very hard as it has been set twisted so she cannot put her arm down. It is likely that she will still be like this during her tests. She is doing practice (reluctantly - i feel very mean) but she is still quite groggy and in pain.
Having gone through appeal last year with my son i am very aware that the circumstances needs to be quite extreme for them to back you. Does she count as extreme?
We may not need to appeal - who knows. She just feels desperate.
Should i contact county beforehand to make them aware of her situation?
Maybe someone can help.
