I think is was sharon who one day said to me. O!!! your the one with the Rituxan saga on the forum… I pray it has given hope and comfort to some of the many readers.. I guess it has to end somewhere. It appears, and I believe that it has put my CIDP in remission. NWU doctors agree. Me, I have to pinch myself to make sure it is not a dream… I feel pretty good, continue to improve with no Rutuxan in 4 months. That means I have missed 2 that I would have had at every other month.
It has been a long time since 1998, and a rough road. Looking forward to the future.
Please Keep the Faith, perhaps your remission is just around the corner, by whatever method God chooses.. God Bless
Active CIDP, Jan 1998 until Summer 2011
We just got back from having him casted. I was surprised at how quickly the fibreglass type dries. The guy Bert put on around Nate’s foot, then up his leg, then one from his calf just below the knee down to complete his foot wrap. He held Nate’s foot straight as he could while the stuff dried. It hurt.
It was dry in about 2 to 3 minutes though, and Bert cut it off.
He laughed at how big Nate’s feet and ankles are.
Nate wears 15’s and 16’s. Big feet run on both sides here.
We should have the AFO in about 10 days as Bert will be gone a few days to a seminar.
I’m so glad its finally in the works now and Nate can start wearing it.
His Pt person says it will really help him.
Bert says he will have to wear it all day though as long as his foot is down. That will be hard to get used to but if he wants that foot straightened, he will have to do it.
