Hi all,

Got some good news...my appt. with my out-of-state the very important one needed for getting full evalauation and c-spine case reviewed by NS and neuro team that I've been scheduled for but a long -- wait has been moved closer!! I now don't have to wait till Nov.it's now mid-Sept. date!!

I called asst. to NS explained the progressive neuropathy and dysfunction/damage going on in my left arm/hand and asked if there was any way my appt. could be moved up...they checked to see what they could do & because of cancellations were able to get it moved to mid-September instead of first of Nov.!!! Hurray!

I was really quite anxious with Nov. date being so far out and in light of what my neuro-compression in c-spine 6/7/8; progressive and disabling/damage to left arm/hand/fingers in just 3 months + issues with deformed thecal sac (spinal cord).

Had many prayers hoping something would shift and allow me to get in sooner...and it happened!!

p.s. Made flight arrangements today... that felt sooo good to accomplish !!
