a LOT for you! And will continue to do so for the ‘durations’!
Truly and wholly, you are near my heart and soul for wishing super strength and that it all works out SUPER! Fudge, even above average would do, wouldn’t it?
Please remember, that you are in the back of my mind, all of the time!

I am closely following your journey. My thoughts will be with you tomorrow, and of course lots of prayers too. You can do this!

i decided to get up– usually prednisone wakes me around now anyway, then i usually take a little something to get the rest of my sleep. not today.
i’m up, with coffee and focused.
i wanted to thank you all for your thoughts, vibes, energy, whatever…
it feels like a collective of strength and support…
sophie will post as soon as it’s a good time and we can say something about how the day went.
hugs and wishes of good health to all,

Prayers and wishes for Sophie, too. What a great team you make !

Alice, I will be following your posts with great interest, and hope you knock CIDP into a long-lasting remission.
This Northwestern protocol, or the Revimmune protocol (which uses ultra high-dose cytoxan w/o stem cell transplant) are two options I believe hold much promise for severe cases, based on research I have read.
