    Posted by Mary on 10/14/08

    I am so sorry to hear your news! I can just imagine how
    many other people are getting the same news. I am still
    waiting for my 2nd Review results and I imagine I'll get the
    same news as you. When did you get the results of your 2nd
    review? My lawyer told me the exact same information as
    you. I hope you find a way to get the money you were told
    you should receive from your attorney.
