    may be having brain surgery later this year if the stroke scar tissue isn't in the way of the electrodes. they say that then 2 electrodes will placate my movements enough to control my movements.

    I loved that movie, read all about the guy and saw a documentary about him.
    I mostly saw the horse and never really looked close enough to see it was a man-haha.

    I miss your horse Cass!
  9. i have used a waterbed most of my adult life. after injury, i tried the tube kind but didn't like it so went back to the simple bag kind. i have padded sides which aid in transfers. am a c7 and learned how to get in and out w/no transfer board so that's not a prob. as far as press sores, never had one except on my elbow (leaning on it at work) and one long time ago on my heel (cause unknown). this is in 24 yrs of being c7, asia B. the waterbed is great. in winter, it keeps me warm and in summer, it cools me down. i even lay mostly on one side any more, no probs. in terms of the bag type, you can get motion reduced by different percentages (e.g. 50% waveless), but i pretty much stick with regular because the motion doesn't bother me. hope this helps. feel free to ask more. oh, and i am definitely more comfortable in my waterbed but not sure if it really helps relieve pain. i do know after a trip in hotel rooms, i cannot wait to get home to my waterbed.
  10. hey cass i was ready a pain thread and seen a old post of yours that might can give me a idea what i have to look forward to.. well i have the chronic mass pain like many but i went through 2 beds and thinking bout a water bed and you said you have one and i want to know if it is helpful? in pressure sore? pain relief? etc.. i seen there is 2 kinds the plain water bed and the othere with fiber thread in between to keep a steady feel then a motion type of waves in bed.. what ever information you can give me i would be greatful and appreciated. take care and God bless!

    I'm sorry you're in a lot of pain right now, Cass. The only thing I can say is that most teens at 16 are tough to deal with, but it's just a phase and this, too, shall pass. Hang in there.
