    Patient Information - new info for VHL

    in Health

    There are many challenges common to all rare diseases:


    1. How to get a correct diagnosis?


    2. How to find doctors who understand the condition and can provide therapeutic help.


    3. How to manage day to day, making choices and getting medical help to moderate the symptoms and maximize one's quality of life.


    The VHL Alliance assembled its first collection of guidelines for patients and their general doctors in 1993, and has been evolving it regularly since then as new information has emerged.  This is now one of the best established Handbooks for a rare disease -- now in its 5th edition, and translated into 15 languages.


    Joyce and Robin speak with Suzanne Nylander, O.D., editor of the 5th edition, about what's new in the Handbook, how the Handbook helps both patients and doctors, and what they have learned about the power of sharing information -- among patients and among physicians and healthcare systems worldwide.


    Hard copies are available for purchase from the Alliance or from Amazon.com.  You can download the text for free at http://vhl.org/handbook.

    God's Assessment Of Our Giving

    in Christianity

    Mark 12:41-44 New King James Version (NKJV)


    The Widow’s Two Mites
    41 Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. 42 Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites,[a] which make a quadrans. 43 So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; 44 for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.”

    Take A Breath At The All Star Break - An Assessment

    in Hockey

    Two weeks ago, I said, while with big injuries, if they can stay at .500, it would be a big success. It would allow them to heal up and get ready for the next lap of the season. Lo and behold, this is where they have been with an OT loss to Vancouver, a win versus Ottawa, a loss against Detroit and a postponement against the Flyers. Two big injuries and got 3 points in 3 games. 


     


    Hamonic is back, Boychuk will be too after all star break


     


    So what's next...


     


    More misery from fans? Surely. Lots of hope of rescue in a trade deadline miracle? Don't hold your breathe. 


     


    What is needed is for players not performing as they did last year to get on track or ramp up. That will be the big difference maker.
