THE HOLIDAYS APPROACHETH

Here we are with the entire family - kids and grandkids - in a beautiful warm spot. The girls are living in their swimsuits in the pool and Bill and I are in charge while their parents are off doing last minute shopping.                                                                                                                 
Yesterday we wore ourselves out at the grocery store, getting food for a week for all these people, but it was worth it.  I of course, had the grocery store scooter to drive around, but Bill was on foot and may I just say I  do get a teeny bit gleeful when I wear him out on an excursion!

THE BIG SCREEN, THE BIG M

Warning...spiral thinking ahead....
  



Right up front I have to tell you that I am a fourth generation movie nut.  My great-grandmother was taking my mother to movies in the 30's and Dad's first date involved two dimes, a girl "friend" who was handed one of them, and a trip to the movie theater with each of them walking up the opposite side of the street, paying and entering alone, then meeting up inside...at least that's how Dad liked to tell it.

UPDATES ON FOOTDROP DEVICE & CCSVI TREATMENT

This post is about Footdrop and the latest thing I've tried to compensate for that oh-so-charming aspect of MS. At the very end there's a brief update on my one year anniversary of venoplasty for CCSVI.

After using the bungee cord device for almost a year, I got a Bioness L300 stim device. I've used it now since June and have gotten used to it.  I think it works the best of the 3 things I have tried (see previous posts on this subject by clicking on Foot-Drop in the right frame).
