    Thank you KLD, I will do just that!
    From the time you were born till you ride in a hearse, there is nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse!

    All fringe benifits must be authorized by Helen Waite, if you want your SCI fixed go to Helen Waite!

    Why be politically correct when you can be right!

    You can also ask the question on IRIS. Call the MN VARO for information too.
    Anything worth doing, is worth doing to excess

    that's just what they categorized me at first with....they just changed it the first of 2011, i don't remember why they said they changed it, new guidelines or what, i got the letter filed, but year before last they had me cat 5 and then sent me a letter the first of 2011 and said i was cat 4.....which is great, no co-pays and such..........

    My husband had his first appointment at the VA on Friday and they could not have been any nicer to us. The team and doctor were casual and knew their stuff.
    It was great he got ALL of his skin looked over and people that actually knew about SCI.
    We now have a resource if he has skin issues.
    He is being referred to the hub in Minneapolis where he will be pressure mapped and the OT had some suggestions on improvements on his chair.
    They nearly embarrassed me with praise.
    Thanks everyone!

    I am so glad that you both sought the services to which he is entitled through the VA as a Veteran who has served our country. I continue to find Veterans out there who don't know what the VA has to offer for those with SCI, and still have old ideas about what the VA is about. Your husband is lucky that you pursued this.

    Fantastic!

    Don't forget we have telemedicine to link us all together and I serve on the National SCI Telehealth Steering Comittee with their SCI Coordinator. If the therapist would like any assistance with your husband's chair, they know where to find me.
