One letter and one text is the norm.

Not using a stick should not go against her but explain why she is unable to use one at the assessment.

Hi, The assessment is done, My wife thought it was horrendous it was late on in the afternoon , she is only just recovering from the stress she anxious person anyway , so we been told 6 8 weeks for a decision so in total it’s been a long time especially if you suffer with your nerves
I will keep you posted

Posts on the forum suggest it is more likely to be 10 weeks for a Decision.
