GH, I added lumbar puncture (w/ fluoroscope) to my notes.  I’m not usually a wimp, but the thought of a needle in the spine is not pleasant at all. Mental note on the rings as I never take them off.  I have to tell you, what you have gone through is more than terrible. I am grateful to hear you are improving with the plasma exchange.  My symptoms are minor compared to yours.  My symptoms are, ever so slowly, getting worse as time goes on.  This last bout with the flu a month ago really set me back.  The numbness/weakness are progressing.

Again, thank you for posting. I see the doctor next Monday and will be as prepared as I can be.
