3 days and a wake-up

That is how guys in The Navy refer to the time left.

I am so happy this discovery has been made for all the MSers out there. Praises to Dr. Zamboni!! I am going to write a personal letter to him when I get back. We have alot to learn, but what we know, is getting blocked veins unblocked is helping alot of people.

I am also thankful for all my friends and family because I know that there is going to be a lot of praying and good vibes being sent our way, so thanks to all of you, and a big thank you to our heavenly father for all.

August 3rd is just around the corner

We are heading to NY in 8 days. I am really trying not to have too much in the way of expectations, but if you know my personality that is almost impossible. I am a glass half full kind of girl. I have always thought it could be the reason my MS has been somewhat in the background of my life. I really am not thinking that so much anymore. I am sure that thinking positively is always better than not, at least it certainly feels better mentally. I have just been fortunate that the iron deposits (at least I understand that is thought the problem) have not landed in other places that could have made things so much worse. Even saying that, the last year or so has been rather difficult. I am now very aware that I cannot ever walk as far as I want, and if it is hot outside that is taken down even more. I live in Austin, Texas, so guess what? Alot of what I like and want to do, is outside and hard right now.
With all of the stories of success, I do feel I am also going to be one of those. Here goes that glass half full... I really cannot help it. I believe we are in history making times in the world of MS. Come on angio. Open up my future!!
