In a Holding Pattern

Went to the Dr. yesterday. Good news.....no NEW lesions on my brain, but the others are still there. No lesions on my neck (which is awesome!) Though they did find early signs of arthritis in my neck....wahhh, no wonder it hurts all the time. I guess I really am getting old, sshhhh, don't tell anyone!

The medication my dr. put me on seems to be working well. I've been feeling pretty good for a while now. I've also been doing some massage therapy which has helped immensely! I even got a prescription for it, but we'll see if ins. agrees ;)

From here, we are going to just watch. As long as I'm feeling good they'll leave me alone. When my symptoms flare up again I'll go back in for more tests. I am gathering my things for a specialist, to get a second opinion. But for now I've been told that I do have MS, but at the moment it's under control and we'll figure it out along the way. I'm not really worrying too much about it at this point. It is what it is. I'm feeling pretty good and the future is certainly not hopeless.

In scrappy news ;)
I played along with the Crate Paper blog sketch and got a mention. Didn't win the big shabang....but came in close. You can see me here ;)
Here's Jack on his first day of preschool BEFORE he realized none of his friends would be there!
