Smile Got a call from VA today

The type of call every Vet would like if he needed it,thay have approved the bids for the bathroom and to make the doors wider.I put the bids in late July of this year and am surprised it has been so quick,they will make it so easy for me.Thank you Charleston SC and the Ralph Johnson VA Hospital,and all the staff of the ALS Clinic there.Life can be wonderful,even if you have ALS.

Make sure you sign up for the VMLI. It was $90k, went to $150k on 10/1, and goes to $250k on 1/1. Huge.

That's fantastic! Enjoy all of your new modifications I am happy to hear that the VA is helping you out in a timely manner.

My Dad submitted his paperwork for the VA ( all initial paperwork) a few months ago and it is slow moving thus far He did attend his first ALS support group and the facilitator plugged him into an employee with PVA to advocate for him and that seems to be helping things to move along....
