    Right, I hear you. Can you call your orthotist and spell out the specific needs (as listed in your post above) for an AFO you can use in the pool? The reason I stress this, is that I'm always amazed...

    dave, I've tried that exact brace and it does NOTHING. I can't recommend another one, because I've never found an "over-the-counter" brace that works. As you know, it's not safe to wear an actual AFO...

    Great blog post. I am so glad to see the choices that are becoming available. Those magnetic closures in place of buttons would be a big help, and a major visual improvement over velcro. I've pretty...

    Was this reply possibly intended for another thread? Chelley's issue is pain from an extruded disc, rather than increased spasticity (unless she raised that issue in a separate thread).

    With kids to take care of, I'd be looking for efficient solutions, too. It's taken me anywhere from 1-3 mos to get better, using conservative measures. My spine is like a house of cards - have to be...

    Hi Chelley03, I have several disc extrusions along the entire length of my spine, and when it started happening I looked everywhere for solutions. In the end, only time - lots of it - and...

    Agree with djrolling. These exteriors are all by the same company, so they're probably equally durable and all that remains to be decided is optics...which one YOU think looks best.

    Oh, how awful! Yes...what can one possibly say or do, in this tragic situation? I think that just silently being there for your friend is probably the most loving course, though there's so much more...

    I'd heard of Pavlova, but didn't know exactly what it was. It looks and sounds delicious...a gluten-free decadent uncake.

    What a great space! The shower itself does seem cramped, but otherwise the suite sounds very accommodating.

    Congratulations to you and NL, GJ! I wish you many, many more such celebrations (though...

    Had to laugh at this! My husband and I have several friends who've designed houses with their significant others, and these kinds of decisions cause more heated arguments than almost anything else.

    Those kinds of decisions can cause a lot of arguments, for sure. I guess you could do some rooms with her choice, and some with yours - though that would interrupt the continuity and flow of the...
