Re: My NS visit

more~ That is a wonderful idea of doing the exercises in the shower, but...I have to wear a collar while in the shower too. I replace the miami j with a philadelphia collar for showering(one half at a time, never with full neck exposed). Of course now I can remove the collar for the whole 2 minutes it takes me to do the exercises, but not in the shower.
