Update on Health and so much to be thankful for.

Thought I would just update my blog for those who read it.

The steroids I had recently seemed to have worked and my vision came back in my right eye, then a few days ago it went again. I still have my left so I am still smiling.

I saw my MS nurse last week and mentioned I have pain in my right hip, I am going to have an MRI scan on it to check no damage has been caused by the steroids I have taken. It is painful but I am at peace with whatever it may be, God enables me to have this peace and I am so thankful.
I will update you when I know more.

My daily injections are going well and I am not bruising as much as I used to and when I look back to when I started capaxone it certainly has reduced my amount of relapses, so yet another thing to be thankful to God about.

I am thankful my husband is my full time carer, and is the best husband in the world (yes I am biased lol).

I am thankful for my son being understanding why his mummy is in bed so early.

I am thankful for my bloggy friends who are so encouraging.

Most of all I am thankful for the Lord Jesus Christ who paid the price for my sins.

Sometimes we have to step back and see all the blessings we have daily.

I'm glad your feeling a little better. I was on Copaxone for six months but had awful injection site reactions. I'm glad it's helping you.

Awe, Clare. You have such a sweet grateful heart. You will always find what you need with the Lord, and I'm so glad you turn to Him and receive His peace.

I am going to be praying for you!
Hope your Wednesday is filled with blessings!
HUGS!

Hello blogger friend--it's neat to connect here, and find others "like" me.

I'll keep praying for you.

I had the same test on my hip and luckily it was negative, so I will hope yours is negative, too.

As Steven said, your spirit and heart are strong--keep them that way.

Peace, Beth

Hi, Clare! Thanks for your kind post. It's nice to know that there are others loving life as much as me that have been diagnosed with MS. Well, not officially for me yet. I got my MRI and showed more than 8 lesions plus I've had the tingling on my left leg and arm that comes and goes. I fainted, too and struggle with vertigo.
The 1st spinal tap showed negative on the tests but my neurologist says that doesn't mean anything. I"m so frustrated. I just want to put a name to it all.
Anyway, I pray for your quick healing. I'll be keeping in touch. Thanks for listening!
In Him,
Carolina
