VA Healthcare is a supportive and efficient system in our experience to date. We are grateful to be so fortunate.
Like I mentioned, the PEG is usually outpatient work, but I'm going to be admitted for 3 days. We were just scheduled for Wednesday June 1 June 8, for check-in. The procedure is on Thursday and I'm back home with the girls the next day.
Enjoy Memorial Day weekend, we will be with family and loved ones so I know I will!
The onset presented itself as Bulbar, starting in my throat. As a result I am now trached and use a vent (although my lungs are still strong). I have also lost significant muscle in my both hands, arms and shoulders and can no longer walk. My posts here are typed with my eyes starting in 2012.
