Thanks for the post Karen; I had never read your story before. They ruled out CS early when they were thinking B-12 deficiency alone was my problem. My B-12 deficiency, it turns out, was borderline. It will be interesting to see what my last blood test shows when I return to the neurologist. I know continuing my injections (1 cc per month) is required to maintain myelin repair. Hope you continue to heal and may God’s richest blessings be with you as well.

I will see my neurologist tomorrow afternoon. It’s the day I’m supposed to select the immunosuppresant. I will post after my appointment and let y’all know how it goes. There are several questions I have for the neurologist. How careful do I have to be around crowds after I begin the immunosuppresant? What is the continued benefit of physical therapy? I’m not 100% normal by any means. I can’t run, but I’m thinking I might get there again.

My feet began burning again Tuesday and yesterday was the worst. It’s abating now and not so bad this evening. I still have one week to go until my next PE rounds.

May God grant you all healing and a great night’s sleep tonight … Gary
