I am very sorry to hear about your dog! I am a dog (animal) lover. I couldn't live without a furry buddy! I have two dogs, a cat, a horse and other various critters.
I read almost everyday. I just don't post very often anymore. I am hanging in there. There is a huge controversy in the world of MS. It is a surgical procedure that hasn't been proven nor is it approved. There is some anectodal info to say this could be very helpful for MSers. It is hard to know whether you should take out a big fat loan and run off to Poland or Italy to have this procedure done, or wait to see if it gets approval in the US. The problem with MS is it is unpredictably progressive so you never know. Do you wait and hope for approval and pray for minimal progression............and if you do progress will you spend the rest of your life saying "what if I had done it." Or do you run off to Europe and slide past the US process of approval in order to head off progression spending about ten grand. Interesting situation.
