December 1: Good test results
We spent the day at Kaiser Redwood City to test Joe for a baclofen pump and it seems to be a success which means they will implant a "hockey" size pump under his skin and deliver the baclofen anti-spam medicine directly to his spinal cord. Now, we just have to bribe the neurosurgeon to move Joe up in his schedule so we can get the surgery done ASAP but it might not be until next year. After the trial today, Joe was much more relaxed, less spastic and had better control over his muscles. We are very pleased with the results.
