    Hi Mike

    After all this time I found your In Memorial post for your wife and your blog here. I plan to read it all, and your eulogy for your wife was wonderful. Thanks for sharing. She was lovely.

    Hello Mike,

    I am sorry for your loss.
    I had a question regarding your experiences with ALS and the challenges at night. I found it difficult and I was wondering if a new communication device for night or sleeping time will help?

    I'm not sure if you read my post in the VA comp section. My brother will be getting a chk via direct deposit on 10/25.
    Thank you

    Sorry about this msg being broken up, I accidentally hit post prior to completing it. Again, to my surprise, the VA unexpectedly went back to 2006 for my claim. Will they go back to when his symtoms began or to recent dx? He's very happy about this and really only cares about the monthly comp. I was just curious about how they will handle it. Also, they're going to set him up for appt. to determine SP eligibility. Thank you for your guidance Mike. We wouldn't have have gotten anything had it not been for you and some other vets who offered their experience.

    I have a quick question for you. My brothers neurologist completed the VA compensation questionnaire - final dx is ALS. The Rep @PVA contacted him and said that he would get his 1st check at the end of Nov., I thought he said Oct. oops. My question is will it be retro from the date of dx or from the date in which the symtoms began? I ask because when I was approved in 2014 for 10%, I rec'd a retro chk that went back to 06, which is when my
