    Hello to everyone from beautiful rainy Beijing, thanks for all of the prayers and well wishes, yes and Lance I do blow a kiss at the moon everynight it's comforting to know 1/2 a world away we still get it!!!!! In response to Glomae, you are not able to stay in your powerchair on the flight and depending on what level injury you are you may want to reconsider coming alone. Also the care and communication here is limited you really need a caregiver. You can find more on travel in the travel forum. We are basically in a holding pattern here waiting for the surgery, We've had x-rays today blood work and other tests tomorrow some kind of lung test if all goes well were hoping for surgery on Tuesday.....Talk to you all soon
    love and kisses to all Bob & Karen

            Hey Tim, Handibob can you please let us know your level of injury and if complete or incomplete and if you have any neuropathic pain? Also did you have to take your own meds and cath kits over there?

            By the way hope you get great results! Good luck fellas

                    Bob , the photo takes a little time to come up , and if you are getting a sign like the old NSW unrestricted speed signs except red , it sounds like you are not logged into the site .
                    thank you ,

                      Just a quick reply today has been a busy day with tests, a lung capapcity test and a MRI for me, a language barrier sure makes it a challenging experience but we muddled through it. Our power chairs are quite the attraction to all of the chinese people as we drive by they stop and stare in amazement. It's quite interesting to see their reaction. The people here are so kind I just had a woman wash my entire power chair and I felt so humbled by it it was an incredible feeling. Earlier today one of the staff was running down the hall to give me a McDonalds Big Mac it's just incredible how accomodating these people are. The weekend is probably a waiting time, Tim and I are still hoping to have our surgery on Tuesday will keep you posted talk to you soon. Bob

                        --
                        Dr. Huang observing patients who had the surgery approx 1 month ago and the recovery which was phenomenal they are standing on their own
                        ---

                        If this is the case then

                        1: is it published in any scientific paper? (if not, will it be and when)

                        2: Why not other institutes doing it?

                        3 Should now everyone go to china who has SCI injury because only Dr. Huang will do the surgery?

                          Glad to see they have a customer service plan set up. Keeps the future patients happy. Good luck to you guys and to the staff.

                          This is the kind of story that needs to be in the New York Times.

Hell, it can't hurt....I hope. Let's keep our fingers crossed that they can help to get the word out. Love ya bunches, Paula
