Well Phil, it's actually here!!! I'm so excited because I have just learned about it's availability and am in the process of applying to start to get this amazing new treatment.

Cyberonics is one company that makes the VNS unit and they have a Website at If you click on the link for providers, you can actually view an hours long satellite broadcast (broken up into manageable segments) that was aimed at providers. I liked it because I'm used to getting information at a higher level, and it even included one patient's statement about her experience.

I will keep everyone here posted as I progress through the treatment algorithm and let you all know what happens.

Also, there is a book about this therapy from a patient's perspective, called, "Out of the Black Hole". I ordered it with 2 day shipping, so I'll have it by early next week.

Take good care,
