Wow what a small world. I live in Mitchell but we spend most of the summer in Yankton camping on the river! I saw Dr. Klein at Mayo and then in Sioux falls I see Dr. Zimprich @ Neurology and Associates- he trained at Mayo and is very familiar with CIDP. He is very thorough and does a great job. Mayo did recommend pool therapy for me as well – I wish I could have that all the time!! Dr. Koob in Sioux Falls was my diagnosing Dr. – Spinal Tab, Mri and EMG confirmed and those have been repeated at Mayo twice over the years confirming the DX. Great to meet you!!
Wow what a small world. We are exactly 1 hour from Michigan City. Thanks for thinking of us. We have two beautiful girls 18 and 13, so they are not little ones anymore. We’ve always enjoyed though that no matter how old they’ve gotten they still want to do things with us. We have to enjoy that while we can. I feel blessed to have them because with everything going on with dad they pitch right in and help with other things.
Thanks, guys, funny thing, it inadvertantly got me in touch with the wife of Dr. Saperstein, who presented at the Phoenix symposium and who first defined the criteria for diagnosing CIDP. She offered to “pull strings” if I wanted to see her husband for a consult. They live in Phoenix.
She and my daughter are friends sharing the same interest in “Altered Arts”. It was on their Yahoo group where I came across what I the posted below.
