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.

First Infection....

Hi everyone! I'm writing to you from my blackberry at Kadlec Medical Center ICU. So I'm not really an ICU patient, they classify me as Intermediate Care but there were no beds available there so this is where I was placed. Anyway, I was admitted yesterday and really hope to go home tomorrow. Basically I have come down with a cold but since I don't have much of an immune system it didn't take much to get really bad....only about a day. My heart rate went up, oxygen went low and now I'm back on steroids....which SUCKS!!!! But, I am much better today and as much as I hate steroids they are a necessary evil. Plus it's a temporary thing. I have a cold, which is viral, so there's only so much they can do. Protect my lungs with the steroids and let it run it's course. Fortunately, I'm already much better (before the transplant something like this put me down for a couple weeks) so I'm really optimistic. If I'm this much better in just a day, I should be back to my norm (post-transplant) in no time! Anyway, I hope you are all doing well. Take care! :)
