Well, I'm several months into it, and progress is slower than anticipated, but I march on! This project has tested my endurance. The consignment from Neurology Solutions is progressing day-by-day and sometimes it feels like trench warfare!

Thank's to the ongoing oversight of Dr. Robert Izor and team at the Movement Disorders Center in Austin, the surgical procedure I underwent in 2014 continues to prove efficacious. The miracle of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery, now three years later, enables me to complete a project of this scale.
