MS update and treatment.

I went to my neurologist today. He is a pleasure to see even if he is always running late, as he is so passionate about his work.
I am currently going throught a relapse and have lost strength and sensation in my right hand side.
I start a three day course of IV steroids on tuesday.
I tend to react well to them and it improves my health very quickly. All other courses of treatments are just too risky at moment as one of them is a mild chemotherapy drug which has a 1 in 100 chance of getting a blood disease in the furture. There are a lot of new medications that should be ready for public use very soon. So I am waiting for that to happen.

Weight loss update.....

Well I have had a testing week with health issues and to be honest I struggled to stay on plan, but I managed to loose 2 1/2 lbs this week. Totalling 10 1/2 lbs so far. This completely amazed me.

Better be focused this week as I don't think I would get away with it 2 weeks in a row.

Feeling out of sorts.

Oh well it had to happen. I have had a long run of of relatively good health.

I am loosing sensation in my right side. I am dragging my right foot a little and my right hand is so weak I can do only a few things with it.
And the exhaustion is so frustrating, I do something and then I am wiped out.

I see my neurologist next week anyway so I have not made and appointment for my new symptoms.

The Lord will sustain me no matter what. Thankyou Lord for being with me, even though I fail you so often you never fail me. What a Mighty God I have.

Weight loss update - 1/2 stone award.

I lost another 1 1/2 lbs this week and that totals 7 lbs (1/2 a stone).

Slowly but surely.
