      Hello to everyone. I’ve been away from the forum for a while. Remember me? My 71yo mom, Barbara, was diagnosed Oct 2004 while traveling in London. She’s still working hard to improve from an extremely severe case. Still on vent most nights – has gone up to 36 hours a couple times off vent, but fatigues too much without giving her diaphragm a rest on the vent. Able to start/stop and steer her electric wheel chair. Can lift her lower legs almost straight out now when sitting up. Set back last spring for several months of complete bed rest following plastic surgery to repair an ulcerated hip wound. But now back at OP PT/OT 3xs per week. I’m looking forward to meeting many of you next November when you come here to PHoenix for the meeting. Ahhh…November will be nice and cool – none of the 116 degree days we’re having currently!
      It’s good to be back.
