  2. Hi Everyone: One of my few messages, but I do read everything! Just one question, and I really hope I don't offend anyone, but has anyone wondered why Heather has not replied to this "large" discussion about her wonderful performance on "Dancing With The Stars"? I'd love to hear how she feels about this "incredible response" about her amazing feet on the show? I really hope I'm not hurting or offending anyone. But I have never seen a response from Heather on this site, hopefully I have just missed it? Heather, what do you think about how we all feel about you?

    2007 ACA Conference

    Hi Ed; Lynne here! who did you apply to for your membership? I'm wondering if I could do the same as I have my Dad's Vet Card? Thanks, Lynne Thanks for the tip. I was informed that I was the first Canadian to ask about this. I recieved my membership this past week. So now I suppose it is time for everyone to indicate if they are in fact attending this year.. We need to set up a list the same as last year and make some similar arrangements for meeting etc......................... Looks like JohnnyV you're on............ ED
  4. Is it too late for me to go? It's taken this long for me to find out if I have the funds or not Lynne Calgary, PS: Is Ed going Is there a meeting place? Thanks, Guys

    Prevention of Phantom Pain

    Hi Gil: I work in the Operating Room, and have seen that most new amputee patients have less "Phantom" pains if the recover with the ENDOBUTTON. This enables the patient to administer the "pain killer" by themselves at whatever time they need. Lynne Canada

    2007 ACA Conference

    Hi Cheryl: It would make it possible for me to attend if I could share the accommodation, but I smoke!!!! I'm starting acupuncture next Wednesday, so I might (very hopefully) be a non smoker by then. What do you think? Lynne Canada

    WHAT DO YOU DRIVE?

    Hi I drive an amazing 4 x4 "canary yellow, Dakota. (I love going 4 x 4'ing) and; A 1971 Cougar Rag Top, which I will be "putting into a show" in June Lynne
  9. Hello Tom; The only thing I can say is 'DITTO" L Sometimes, great minds think alike. I read what K. had to say, and the word that came to my mind was EXACTLY - then I scrolled down and saw that Tom was thinking the same thing. :lol: She's willing to try and do her own thing. I have no more reason to be against that, than a two legged person wanting to fly to the moon. I guess that the only point that I try to make is for some not to hold this up as something that amputees, MUST strive for. If I had two legs, I still would not want to take the time, energy and extreme effort to perfect the proper dance steps - or to learn the proper techniques to climb a mountain, not to mention the endless hours it takes to train and get into condition for. If this is other peoples thing - then I say "go for it". I just don't want to overlook the everyday folk, who just want to take a walk with their kids, or go grocery shopping - or as I've said before, "climb a curb". For some people this is scary as all get out - and takes extreme bravery on their part. Now, with all of that said, I intend to sit back and enjoy the show, and root for my home team - meaning, one or our own out there, not being afraid to seek her own goals. (That is - watch it when I can. It is not part of our normal schedule.) It is my understanding that this lady has spent much of her time wandering the halls of hospitals, watching the wounded and new amputees, just trying to walk - or some semblance of, and offering encouragement. If what I've read is true, then she deserves a few minutes of my time watching her do her thing.
