    How far to you need to lift? 20" (which would be what you would need a 20 ft. ramp for)??? Outdoors, unprotected, I would assume, vs. indoors, so a porch type lift?

    The two piece slings, such as those used with the old Hoyers with chains are more difficult to properly position than a one piece hygiene sling, and risk more sliding out if not placed perfectly. I...

    I think you are talking about 2 point vs. 4 point spreader bars, correct? There are actually more slings available for the 2 point than the four point type. For both, you can purchase a hygiene type...

    It might not be the pre-gabalin, but rather the result of stopping the drug. Any stresser on the body can cause an outbreak anywhere. Once you have the virus, you have it. It can lie dormant for...

    My understanding is that it can be used either way. But, I don't use it. What is the consensus out there?

    Are you eating more or less? The prednisone can increase your appetite, so that is the reason for the question. I would probably recommend that you restart your bowel routine with an every day one...

    There are many options so yes you can get into the water. You don't say what your bladder program is - and that would be helpful to know. My comments could be much more specific to your situation....

    Agree with the advice above/ The one caution I would add is to change one thing at a time, wait 5-7 days and see if the change helps. I would try something other than the lactulose - almost any of...
