Here we go again...

Allison has gone approximately 2 years after having her 5 day inpatient treatment of ketamine at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC. She is scheduled again for May 14-18 and her pain symptoms have become too life interferring as she had to leave her teaching job on medical leave this past April along with having to increase her medications. She also was having outpatient ketamine more frequently which was a sure sign that she needed higher doses over a longer period of time to experience significant relief while obtaining and sustaining quality of life once again. We are asking our family, friends, and supporters to send Allison, warm thoughts, positive energy and prayers as she takes another journey down the road to recovery. I will keep everyone updated each day as I did before as Allison fights to be pain free. In Hope, Greg
