    Thanks for stopping by I am originally from TX (el paso) went to NMSU! Lot a cowboys, country music, rodeo's etc. I miss it all, I now live in CA and my two-stepping days r over. I can barely walk much less dance, but dam I sure used to b able to scoot-a-boot! My Baclofen pump has helped out a little in that arena. What about u.?

    epic mustache, there- guy!

    The Baclofen pump is alright. It makes my life better, but I went through more then most getting mine. I have not had any out of pocket cost and actually it is cheaper for me because the refill is considered a medical procedure so Medicare pays all of t with no co-pay.

    Give me a shout if you want more information.
