    May I ask what is the matter with her? I have been to a point of considering a scooter or a walker. I started training my own service dog. That was 2 years ago and I'm feeling pretty damn good. Don't need any assistance; I can run, jump, dance and run circles around most people I know. Some diseases have slow progressions, and nice remissions. I had a recent MRI that actually showed *improvement* in previously damaged areas. I only have God to thank for that!

    I do not mean to come across as a cold hearted SOB /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif, but...........You need to take her to Vegas and let her gamble.

    I swear to God that everytime I am playing a slot machine, some little old lady on a Rascal scooter hits the big jackpot. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] From my experience, any casino will work. Just make sure she plays the progressive machines. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    P.S. If she has an oxygen bottle on her Rascal scooter.....the odds of her winning go up by 800%.

    Ed, Sorry to hear your wife is having difficulties. She will be in my prayers. I agree, take her out and live it up as much as you two can. Make good of the times you have now. Heck lets just all throw a month long party eh? /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
