NEW BLOGGER ALERT - NEW BLOGGER ALERT
Meet Abby at The Lemon~Aid Stand
"When Life Gives You Lemons...."
Abby was very recently diagnosed with MS and is the mother of four children. She just finished some steroids and got to see what her sparkly lesions look like. Abby will be joining the ranks of those who put some of their hope into those self-injections.
Please Welcome Abby to the MS Blogger community.
Here's what she said on Thursday:
My neurologist appointment went well yesterday. I got to see the pretty MS lesions on my brain and spine. The good news is, no more prednisone--YAY!! The bad news--daily injections for the rest of my life--not so yay. But, if it helps prevent further attacks, I will do whatever it takes. I'm not sure when I'm supposed to be starting it, they are supposed to call me with more info later today.
Yesterday, after I dropped the kids off at school, I went to feed our guniea pig, whom we've had for almost five years, and he was dead. My son took it fairly well, my daughter had some heartbreak. So I decided to take them to get them each a hamster. Instead we came home with four gerbils. Damn cute little ones they are. They are all females, so no baby-making will be happening. Then last night, after we got back home, we had a little burial for poor little guniea pig.
In other news, I'm going back to work on Monday. My right hand and arm is still numb, which may or may not go away, so I'm a little nervous (dental hygienist here), but I think I'll be OK. I no longer have any weakness there, so I'm going to give it a whirl. If I think there is going to be a problem, or if I think my patients safety is going to be a concern, then I just won't do it and I'll find a new career. Doing what, I have no clue! Hopefully my chubby, moon pie face will have gone down by Monday so I don't have to go in looking so swollen.
That's all for now.
