    your struggles, testvet.

    Just an FYI - Sen. Sanders is on the Thom Hartmann show every Friday and takes calls.  You might be able to get a response from him as well as reach another audience.

      Thom Hartmann Radio Program
      I live stream Am 760 in Denver because my reception in the foothills is very unreliable.  (The time is live, so 1 - 4 PM MT.)

      You could try an email or instant message before the program starts (3 - 6 PM ET) to let him know you will be trying to call and talk to Bernie about this. Background info could help.

       If you aren't familiar with him, I think Thom really likes getting people on with Bernie who have significant issues that are not unrealistic and really huge problems. Write out what you want to say, streamline it and rehearse. Sanders probably is aware of the issue, not necessarily. There are a multitude of minor details in government. As TracieLynn notes, you get to inform a very large audience made up of a lot of people who are big vet supporters.

      I'm getting into CHF myself and am all too familiar with the disease and treatment. Hang in there. Glad you have a home care nurse to monitor and head off relapses. It was my very favorite job in nursing. (I was known to accuse a few patients of taking ornery pills to stay alive. ;)

      I have a college graduation to attend tomorrow and a family celebration on Saturday. :)  :)  Will contact the congress critter on Monday. Take care.
