I'm about 20 miles south of Grand Rapids in Allegan County but I work in Grand Rapids. I am OBSESSED with the Red Wings. We (My son and I) are a big hockey family. I actually used to play rec league and my son plays now. I have some issues with left side weakness but I am hoping to get it strong enough to get back on the ice by next fall/winter. I have been off of the ice for about 4 years now and I am really, really itching to get back out there. I miss it so much! I am not content with being just a hockey mom. I'm far to hyper for that!
I am very glad to hear advances are being made with foot drop and MS/stroke.Unfortunately my foot drop is caused by a herniated disc and bone fragment to the L5 nerve root. The new walkaide and Bioness devices do not work in my case.
