    I have been getting newsletters for some time now, thanks to meeting Jo Hayden. I love reading the articles, and feel not so alone. Fortunately, I have a job Unfortunately, that precludes me from coming to meetings. Dinner meetings are at 5 and I get off at 5pm, so with travel time, it would be impossible, and lunch, well that’s not possible in one hour either. So, if I could make any wish, it would be to have the dinner meeting no earlier than 5:30 so we working people could attend.

    I have learned so much from the newsletter. I would be happy to save a few trees and get my copy online!

    I received your card the other day and appreciate hearing from my friends. I am doing well thank you. After 8 bouts of pneumonia (the last one almost got me) a doctor at Scripps Green in San Diego found my problem. I have an immune problem. My gamma globulin level was less then 50% of normal. Getting infusions quarterly and back to normal levels. God has granted me 63 years as of today and hopefully more years to be with family and friends. Love to all..keep well

  25. Carol J. Thompson says:

    Your website is a joy to navigate, and equally delightful meeting other survivors. Thank you for publishing the rationale behind Project Blue Whale! Loved the graphic, too. More thanks. Email me your updates. I’ll watching and waiting.Founder, South Plains Post-Polio Support Network,, 806-416-0488

  27. Tom and Adrian-Lee Steininger says:

    Dear Carol and Maureen: This is my first time checking out the website and it looks just great! I don’t know how you do it but every Newsletter comes out informative and interesting and funny. I have been getting it by snail mail and would like to get it now on the website. I have just put your website on my Favorites list so I can get to it quicker. I know this will help with your mailing costs. Thanks for all you and your crew have done for many years. You deserve a Teamwork Reward. If we had to vote on how good you are using the 1 to 10 scale…10 being best; you’d get an 11. Happy New Year and may it be one of the best yet. Love ya! Tom and Adrian

    Hello Ladies >:)
    Your site looks nice! I’ve been working w/ my father, Jody Taylor, on the PBC-FL newltr for many yrs; unfortunately dad passed away last June. I’ll always miss him.
    I continue to do the newsltr with the new editor. Jane. I often saw your nwltr on dad’s desk and enjoyed reading it myself. I’ve added you to my ‘favorites’.. I’ll be back. thx! Tanya

  29. Scott Sedar says:

    Thanks for the informative, beautiful website. It’s a super model for a group that has been looking at black and white paper for a very long time.

  30. Thanks for such an informative website and terrrific resource. I will read my newsletters online and save a tree or two.

  31. Adrian-Lee Steininger says:

    Dear Carol and Maureen:
    I brought my newsletter from September, 2010 to my doctor and asked what he thought about taking the Bromelain. He wrote: “Not harmful but no proven benefits there.” Just thought I’d pass this on.

    You might look into the benefits of Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex with MSM. A family friend said it did him a lot of good with TMJ and neck problems. I haven’t been taking it long but will let you know if it works.

    I do see good results with Echinacea-Golden Seal Complex. It keeps me healthier as it’s for the immune system. I get less colds from others now.

    Really enjoy your Newsletter so much. There’s always something that stands out and informs me even after reading it all these years. Keep up the good work!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year early.

    Love to you all, Adrian

  32. Jane Berman says:

    I’m looking for any experiences PPS folks may have had with Reclast. I’ve been taking Actonel for several years without any problems, but before I started on that medication, I had two separate (6 months apart) attempts taking Fosamax. After several weeks I developed severe flu-like symptoms that only went away when I stopped the medication. I now have osteoporosis in my spine and me non-weight bearing hip and osteopenia in my other hip. My doctor wants me to start on Reclast.

    I am 64 years old, had polio in 1952, and experienced a sudden onset of PPS immediately following the birth of my second child. I am now dependent on crutches to walk short distances and a scooter for anything of longer duration.

    I’ve been searching the internet for any information on this topic as it refers to PPS folks, but have come up with very little. Any experiences, good or bad, would be appreciated.

    This is a fantastic website. I miss the friendships made when I lived nearby and could enjoy times with you. Now that I had to move north I feel close once more when I can join you here.
    My love and Best Wishes to you all.

  34. Jan (jeanette) Moench says:

    I really enjoyed this on line newsletter. Great pictures and write ups. Sorry I can’t make even the meetings but can’t drive that far. I’m stuck in Venice.
    Also have a very bad back & for the last 7 wks have a pinched sciatic nerve.
    Good luck to all of you & it looks like you’re really enjoying yourselves.

  35. seo says:

    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

  36. tony straus says:

    i had no problem getting this promptly when i opened it up on my iphone or computer.

  37. John and Marguerite Celani says:

    Thanks for including us in your email list. Looking at the pictures of the 2014 cruise, reminded us of the great time we had with you nice folks on the trip in February. Hope we can do it again sometime. We are doing pretty well considering age and condition. Much love to all. JOHN and MARGUERITE CELANI, MOORESTOWN, NJ.

  38. Patricia O'Brien says:

    I had polio in 1953 in Queens New York. I was 3 years old. I have been told that I was in a Queens hospital and there was a mandatory quarantine period. Does anyone have any information about this? Perhaps the name of the hospital? Thanks for your help. I am a longtime newsletter subscriber.

  39. Marion Croft says:

    I have been invited to join in on the 2016 cruise! I am SO excited about this and want to thank Maureen for all her hard work. Eddie Rice was good enough to pass on the information to me. I live in Canada and had polio at 18 months of age. I chair a PPS group in the Toronto area now.
    Thanks again and I look forward to meeting you soon.

    Mark Ravenscraft,

    Of all the reading material I receive every month, the one I am sure to read is your newsletter! Without fail I learn something every time. I also enjoy a good laugh, plus I always make notes about some point or fact, or resource I want to follow-up. You do a great service with this cornucopia of tips and tricks for post-polio survivors. We should all be very grateful for your efforts and I send you a big BRAVO! for this wonderful gift you give to us every month. Keep up the great work and THANK YOU! very, very much.
