TO BRAINTALK!

I'm glad that you found us. We live in California, so Houston is a wee bit far for us.

Thank you for your suggestion about the compression pump. That has been suggested to us by Jon's GI doctor, but we haven't pursued it, because Medicaid has been denying equipment to Jon over the past year. Recently, his feeding pump was denied renewal. That's being appealed now.

Does your fiance' show improvement with the pump?

We use compression stockings, which just seem to push the fluid up into his gut and chest, which then causes respiratory issues. We do the lymphedema massage, but it doesn't seem to have any effect on Jon.

Looking forward to getting to know you and your fiance'.

Love & Light,

Rose
