Ann's right, time to call your congressman (or woman)... and find a good lawyer. How can they have "made a mistake" in approving him, if he was in the service? I'm praying that things will work out for you and your family.

He was Army National Guard during peacetime, and originally his active duty was accepted, however, now they are saying it was active duty for training, which does not get him benefits. Any helpful things to put in a letter would be greatly appreciated. Just PM me, PLEASE! HUGS Lori

I am working on every thing. As of now my argument is that Les served his active duty right alongside members of the service who, If they had gotten ALS, they would have been covered.


"When service connection has been established for a condition under any provision of applicable


law, including the provisions described above, such service connection may not be removed

(severed) unless evidence clearly shows that the establishment of service connection was clearly

and unmistakably erroneous, and that the continuation of service connection cannot be maintained or supported under any reasonable theory (the burden of proof being on the Government)."

I believe this is a reasonable theory on why his service connection should NOT be severed. What do you all think? HUGS and thanks to all of you!

Hi gang--

I've missed our conversation but have had a very busy week. 3 more weeks of work and then some more time will be freed up. Seems like every day I can get less done.
Lori, I'm so sorry to hear of your dilemma. Congressperson, for sure- and could you get some local news coverage?
For a cheerier note, today's highlight was travelling down to southern ME with my daughter to pick a puppy she adopted through a rescue service-- she is a true animal person and this puppy is going to mean the world to her- I'm attaching the pic of the 3 of us.
love to all!
Sue

Sue, such an adorable pup! (and a great picture of the three of you!) Only three weeks left...I hear fatigue, don't I?

Lori, we all so wish we could help you. It seems there should be someone with lots of insight involved...to mediate for you.

Hi all
Lori, praying away for you. I hope you are all hanging in there. Like Ann says, so wish I could do something for you.

Sue, that's a beautiful photo. Thanks for sharing it. Here's to lots of happy times with your family once work is finished....and more rest.

Jeff, if you're reading this hi...and bye bye thanks. We want Liz! Now Liz, easy on those bloody marys. There's only so much tomato juice a tummy can take. Hi to your dad too.

Joni, hope you're not worn out from trying to find something hubby can eat. It is so challenging. Mum is still under the weather but I think a little better today. Yesterday was a little scary. How is it the scary stuff always happens out of hours?!

Hugs to all

Sue, love the photo, just love it. It's great to see photos of people, they then come "Alive" across the Internet. When you close your eyes you see a person, not just a name. It's way coooooool. Do I sound hip? No just stupid

Liz, glad to hear from you, and Jeff..............glad you didn't see the gesture. Don't drink too much our Liz, just a wee tipple.

Lori still praying hard.

I am soon off for my swim then I might go see how my trial patient is. Her MRI was hard to read ? Low grade astrocytoma, ? encephalitis who knows? Hope she is much better.

Went to see pirates of the carribean 4 . It was surprisingly good despite the terrible reviews. Apparently the Source Code is amazing, so I need to go see that as well. I do love movies. My time of escape from my swirling head, full of too much thoughts. Or maybe lack of thought would be more appropriate?

Have a lovely day y'all
Aly

Hey everyone, but Jeff. Umm please quit stalking my friend! Had my grands dance recital today they were all so cute! Been swimming too Aly, and I hope your patient is doing some better. Avril I just try to keep him some high calorie shakes made that Barry suggested, and I add everything that is full of calories. I hope mum sleeps well tonight, and you get some rest! Ok everyone have a great memorial Day tomorrow. HUGS to you all!
