And listen to this, The Ritz Carlton adopted this dog, and when regular customers come they can request... (10 replies)

... Thanks Szooze and Dee. I really appreciate you responding to my post. As for my family I think there are done being supportive to everyone I should be healed and as good as new now. They can't see an injury no blood, guts or cast. So they just don't understand. My husband is retired Army and a Army Ranger at that so all he knows is "SUCK IT UP SOLDIER AND DRIVE ON". My Mom...

... JonathanM- sorry I haven't wrote back. I did have ups and downs with the temperature of hydrotrac. The jets hurt to have them on so I would have to have them turned off which decreased the temperature. Sometimes it was too hot for me, just the heat on my legs would make it burn more. I would also use a styrofoam noodle to hold my arms up to do other exercises.. That became so... (20 replies)

I too have had some serious memory... (29 replies)
