October, I get told I need to be in a wheelchair;

December, I FINALLY get into the VA Wheelchair Clinic;

I get read the riot act because I waited so long to get a wheelchair!;

I am told 6 weeks, with 3 to 4 weeks being typical times to get a wheelchair;

7 weeks later, I am told their were some technical issues, but they had been straightened out and I would get my wheelchair in 1 to 2 weeks. ...

We are no 12 days later, and since I had heard nothing, I contacted the VA ... again.

The actual order wasn't sent to Sunrise Medical until LAST WEEK! It may take up to another 5 weeks for my wheelchair to be delivered!

MEANWHILE, my tendonitis is getting worse; me arm is in almost constant pain; just typing this blog is painful!  People in the VA have dropped the ball - BIG TIME!

WTF is going on with these people? It's great that I'm getting a good wheelchair (maybe), but 4 months of delay with constantly worsening injuries is NOT shining a good light on the VA.
