Re: Fell in a ditch

I thought the same thing! Eep, I wish that's what I did read! Why didn't you get checked out immediately! Ouch!

I'm glad you're at least okay to be posting now, though. Take care of yourself.

Re: Sports/activities question

I was post-surgery by the time I was 18 months old, but as long as I wasn't in a brace or cast, my mother took me to swimming. The youngest I can remember going is about age 3. I am not at all...

Re: Sports/activities question

I was diagnosed at birth, and they tried serial casting, but unlike your daughter's IIS, I had congenital scoliosis and fused ribs and all kinds of mess (missing/malformed vertebrae). So the casting...

Re: Heeeeeeeelp!

It's been a few days since you ordered it, now... has the memory foam topper provided any relief at all?

I hope Ellen is feeling better with the stronger meds and the topper. But I'm with Sealy......

Even without the tactile issues associated with Asperger's, I can see why that brace would make sitting and eating difficult. I don't know what to tell you, other than I'm thinking of you guys, and...

Re: Going under--yikes!

That's odd... I don't even remember falling asleep for my recent surgeries (brain surgery in 2002 and nose surgery in 2006). For the 2002 op, I remember being on the operating table in the OR,...
