10/3/07 Test Passed !

Mike underwent a trial of administration of Baclofen to his spinal cord yesterday, and it was concluded that he would benefit from the placement of a permanent pump to administer a constant dose of the drug. No word, as yet, on when the surgical implantation will occur, after which the determination of the precise dosage best suited to Mike will require about a month of trials and close monitoring. Of course, physical therapy will need to resume as well, in order for the effectiveness of the pump to be fully seen. So, the test result was certainly positive in that Mike appears to be good candidate for “Intrathecal Baclofen Therapy” (ITB Therapy), but we have been cautioned against expecting too much too soon. Nonetheless, it is great to see Mike cleared to receive the pump, and the possibilities are exciting. More details when we have them. Thanks for watching over and and praying over this situation.
