Small Update

There isn't much to report at this point. I'm feeling good and I've been active. I have some allergy trouble or maybe even a cold but other than that I'm well. I've been doing yard work and still feel good afterwards. We are having a deck put on the house and today I did some hammering. I admit I did have trouble holding the nails with my left hand after a while but shortly after I stopped my hand was "back."

My head hair seems like it's growing again and I had to shave my legs the other day for the first time since I was in Chicago. I also got my menstrual cycle so I assume the chemo didn't cause early menopause as I was told it could. It seems a little off the normal course but not much. My energy is still good and in general I'm pleased with my progress. I wish I had more to report but I don't. Just enjoying the weather! Hope you are too!


  1. My doc tells me today that Cytoxan may be my magic bullet. I've geen getting a gram a week for the past 5 weeks and most of the symptoms of my latest relapse are gone. My blood levels will be kept within certain limits and I will probably continue on this for several more months. I feel better than I have in a couple of years. Swimming daily. Able to pick up two grandchildren at a time today and hold them both! Life doesn't get much better than this...especially when MS has been a part of it for 35+/- years.

  2. Jane, it's wonderful to read of the progress you have made since going to Chicago!! I am so happy for you! -- Anne B.
