    What gets me 4th is with all the new vets needing help, they are trying to close the VA hospital in Hot Spring, South Dakota. Something about not enough money. Maybe if certain politicians would quit taking million dollar vacations there would be money.

    Don.. V.A. Execs. $7 mill on their last vacation too Disney for a conference.. $6 mill the previous year too Hawaii, with their families for a conference.. See if I can find the link..
    How it basically works.. States with older Vets need their V.A. money, younger Vets are basically pretty healthy for the most part.. Distribution of budgets is fought over like all hell with our Reps in D.C..
    Florida, Commifornia, Arizona, etc. The warmer states attract older Vets eligible for V.A. care.. Now in steps Senator whoever from wherever. Where I am going is the distribution of monies is not controlled.. The Senator or Congressman with the most juice, gets the $$$$ for their state..
    This in turn, cuts Hot Springs South Dakota short.. See where I am going???
    I could write a book on the S.O.B.s and the V.A.. But it is a good medical system, if you know how to talk too them?

    Here yah go.. They rented limos. Guess what? Disney has the most advanced bus connection system I have ever ever seen in my life.. Nope, private limos for the S.O.B.s ride too ride.. Mother F$%kers..
    Best medical system in the world, just feel sorry for the taxpayers, my God if they only knew?????

    My brother had his right shoulder rebuilt two months ago...he goes to therapy twice a week. His shoulder is still fucked up. he says it is worse now then it was. I have a lady friend that had her left shoulder done a couple years ago...it took her six months before she could wipe with that arm. I dunno....

    all i can say is "don't go to the kidney ward in Mc-clellen VA in little rock arkansas .

    if whatever wrong don't kill you they probably induce a heart attack with their dialisis machine or expermintal Rx !"

    Tough call dinky, I don't know.. My buddy in Boca is going through hell with his shoulder also.. Horrendous pain.
    Maybe? like in my case, they just go in take everything out and put in new equipment?
    Literally pain free and ready to roll again. Time will tell but so far so good.

    j4. Just lost a good Nam Bro from a heart attack. He was on dialysis. Sadly one of the dangerous side effects is a high risk of heart attacks. Why I do not know.. Without the dialysis he was not going to live, so he had no choice.

    Dinky for the first six months I wished I hadn't got the surgery then one day it was like a switch had been flipped and got feeling better every day course I was told that would happen. Tell your brother he'll be glad soon. 4th I think you came back over night cause you had the full blown cut you open where mine was done laparoscopy. I was told that too. Nobody would do it cutting around here. They all said three small incisions. ..then they stick those probes in and wreck your shoulder so you won't have a big scar.like I don't have any.
