    I agree, too. My daughter told my about this and RCA555, thank you for adding the link. I am now in a total relapse, keep falling, which has me going to the ER all the time, and it has advanced so bad that I am now undergoing chemo and cortosteriod infusions, which, of course, makes me have to stay away from anyone that's sick. It upsets my children, makes them scared, etc. Makes me scared, but I try not to let my children see it. I even lost my ex-husband to this dreadful disease. Let's hope Medicare covers this and everyone can get the help they deserve!!! Thanks again, RCA555 for posting the link!!! Best of luck everyone!
