This is MY journey with MS! I give you my thoughts, feelings, hopes, and prayers. My wish that one day this disease will come to an end. That one day there will be a cure. For now, I hold on to possibility. I HOPE this will help and inspire not only myself but others.

This Will Be Short

Sorry for the short post. Just thought I would let you all know I am still alive and kicking. The last week or so has been a bit rocky as my MS has decided to show its ugly face once again. I think that this is just how I probably respond to the Novantrone (I have never been one to respond by the book with these meds). This is how it was after my last treatment as well. The treatments come in three month increments and I seem to do REALLY well for about two months, but then it is as if the chemo wears off. That is the phase I seem to be in now. So, I have just finished a 3-day course of IV steroids and today have started the horrid oral steroids. I do have to say though that for whatever it is worth....I would take a good 2 months or so every three months over what I have been given in the past with this illness and for that I am grateful for the Novantrone. :) I am hopeful that because this time my docs jumped right on it I will be able to maintain a decent rest of the month until my next chemo in April. Anything is better than the hospital experience last time.

I hope that all of you are doing well and please keep in touch. Take care!

The 'alive' part is assumed, the 'kicking' part is appreciated.

Where oh where did March go? It flew by so quick. I appreciate all of the kind comments and continued support. You are both wonderful! Oh, and if anything serious was to happen to me, I would have my dad update everyone through a post. :)

Take care both of you.

Jaime
