10/1/07 Baclofen Preliminary Testing Tomorrow !

Just got word that Mike will undergo an 8-hour test tomorrow to determine the effectiveness of the administration of Baclofen (hope I’m spelling that correctly) to his spinal cord through a spinal tap. If everything goes well, then a pump designed to administer the drug on a constant basis will be surgically implanted some time thereafter.

As you may recall, the Baclofen should relieve Mike of the muscular spasticity that has plagued him for some time, and has impeded his physical therapy. This kind of drug therapy has been 86% successful in cases of traumatic brin injury, so please be in prayer that this will work for Mike. We will update as soon as we have the results.

Thanks.
