    :) Hi everyone. I have not read all the threads and will do it another day.

    Landed on the floor transferring from the john to the scooter around midnight. Hit my alarm panic button and they sent the paramedics. They stood me u and I sat on the john and they brought my scooter back in the bathroom. I got on it and into the bedroom and transferred to the bed. My leg and arms do not seem to be getting stronger.

    I have had a cold for over a week and at first had a sore throat with it, but only have the cough now. I think that is why I am weaker. I am taking extra vitamin C but still have a runny nose.

    Andy got my RX's and brought me a Wendy's baked potato and hamburger. After I laid down for two hours and I am ready to go back to bed. Take care everyone. Jeanie :)

    Jeanie, I am so sorry you keep having problems. You seem to do so much better when you are getting PT. I just wish it was possible for you to keep getting it. I hope you feel better soon. I am glad Andy brought supper to you.

    OhJeanie, how frustrating and how miserable...will this latest fall trigger Medicare to pay for more PT?

    Medicare is supposed to pay for PT for persons w neuro-degenerative diseases to keep us from losing ground. The practice used to be different but there was a class action suit about this in ? 2014. We do not have to prove that we are gaining ground or otherwise improving.

    I encourage all to use their benefit every year.

    Ann, could it be that you only get so much per year? If so I expect Jeanie will have to wait until next year, but I am not sure that is true. It should be based on the amount of disability.

    You do get a certain amount based on what is usual for your diagnosis and then, when those are coming to an end, the PT requests more visits from the insurer.

    Hi Renee! How are you and what are you and the cat up to??

    No snow tonight in the city but maybe Tuesday. It’s going to be in the 50’s tomorrow after this cold night. It’s 27 now.

    Love and chocolate - your favorite kind.

    Hi Renee, how are things going with you and your cat? We are always saying we wish we could hear from you.

    Did you plant a garden this summer? How about traveling any, were you able to at least make it to the beach?

    Would love to see more of you if you feel like it and have some extra time.
