    Got a call today from the doctor that has been trying to diagnose Ranger's stomach issues. She has stomach pain after every meal. She drinks apple juice to help the pain go away, and has a medicine that she puts under her tongue that is suppose to help too.

    The doctor had an ultrasound done. They found a growth on her liver. They are going to do more blood tests and an MRI to try to find out what it is. I told her they may be zeroing in on her troubles and what they told me and now she is stressing really bad. She is having anxiety issues.

    Also, she was suppose to graduate to a cane after being in a wheel chair for 4 months and on a walker for 7 months, but the cane that another GTer was going to make for her is not going to be available after all. I’m praying for an angel to help with Christmas this year and the main gift we are going to pray for her to receive is a cane.

    Prayers and good thoughts are welcome, and would be totally appreciated.

    The story of your daughter.

    Also, (I think it was you) that was having problems with your rapist possibly getting out of jail.

    If my memory is correct, I wish you all the best with your troubles.

    I wish you and your daughter the best.

    She is 17 years old and when we took her to the drugstore to measure what length she would need, it measured at 33.25". The 30" would be too short and would make it difficult for her to walk with it. There is a 36", in RED that is the same price...here is the link...is that possible instead?

    There have been several things about Ranger posted...she woke up over a year ago with her legs not working. They put her in a wheel chair, 4 months later she was in therapy and they got her walking on a walker...then they said she could go to a cane but we haven't been able to get it yet.

    Also, she was fondled at 13 years old by a 37 year old man that she thought she could trust...he was sentenced to 30 days in jail, 5000 dollar fine and 2 years probation. I have received 2 emails that he has violated is probation, but they refuse to properly penalize him.

    She has had stomach problems since she was small...I mentioned it to doctors all through the years, but this is the first doctor that has attempted to find a reason for it. They have done a colonoscopy, restricted diet, ultrasound, and now they are doing an MRI after finding a growth on her liver with the ultrasound. They are not sure if it is a tumor or what it is.

    You are correct about my issue...Blessedly, my rapist was denied parole. 3 more years before he comes before the board again.

    Thank you for the good wishes. They are appreciated!

    Of course! I didn't know she was 17. Would she prefer metal over wood? Maybe you guys could poke around online and see if there's something else she would like better. Let me know and I'll make it happen.

    I guarantee her a cane and sooner than Christmas. Relative height and weight will help unless you have a particular model in mind. Send a link or required info via PM.

    She likes this one. One thing about her condition, she has no balance. She would benefit from having one for each side, but I don't want to appear greedy. If both of you want to get her one, that would be great...if not...then if VELO is willing to get this one, they were the first to offer and it would be greatly appreciated. Let me know...After this, we can take it to PM. Thank you so much!!
