Colleen shared my story with you. What it may not clearly detail is that I went to the top doctors across the country and only one was confident that he could save my functionality. My learning is that you have to have more that one opinion and I highly recommend Dr. Eric Moore at Mayo. You may have a very different situation however your voice, breathing and eating functionality demands you seek alternative perspectives. I will send prayers and thoughts your way and you MUST get additional opinions! God Speed!
