Hi Andrew

I am very sorry that I haven't replied to you sooner. My computer blew up on me and I was without one for almost one month also I haven't been feeling well I've had an ongoing battle with bladder infections etc. However I'm going to see a specialist on May 13th regarding bladder and kidneys hopefully something might be done about these infection

As I explained in my first email to you I am a male sixty year old C-4 quadriplegic 17 years post injury. I also have Sleep Apnea which requires me to be on a Bi-Pap machine at night to assist with my inhalation and exhalation. I'm on a maintenance dose of antibiotics for my ongoing bladder infections. Septa tablets times 2 daily. I have had continual problems with my bowels ever since my accident and bowel routines take up to four hours every third day.

I take a daily dose of stool softeners 2 tablespoons of Lactulose 2 Colace capsules daily and two teaspoons of Prodium. I have high blood pressure and I'm on Cozaar 50mg daily. I have tried many natural remedies over the years trying to find some relief from these symptoms some have seemed to help some didn't. I take vitamins and colloidal minerals daily which seem to help some. I also take garlic capsules and ceyenne capsules which also seem to help.

I have Care Givers on a 24/7 basis and I no longer use suppositories for my bowel routines instead I use a water flushing system I started sleeping in the inclined position on March 1st 1999. My bed has a trend and reverse trend mode on it and I just have my Care Giver set it at six degrees which is approximately six in off the floor. To date I have noticed very little difference.

The first week I had sore shoulders and neck but after that they quit bothering me. I have noticed that I seem to have a little more sensation in my lower extremities Also I definitely have a little more feeling on the inside of my arms from the arm pits down to the inside of my elbows.

In the second month I thought my blood pressure had gone down but if it did it was only temporary as it is now back up to where it was when I started.

I do believe that I have noticed a slow but progressively better and faster result in my bowel routines and I do think that my body thermostat seems to be closer to normal than it has ever been since my accident I apologize for not contacting you sooner and not using the form you sent me for reporting (I lost it when my computer crashed) so if you send me a new one I will use it from now on and also I will try to report on a more regular basis health permitting I fully intend to keep on sleeping with my bed in the inclined position even if I think it isn't helping as I'm finding it a more comfortable way to sleep. Yours truly Gale.
