My numbers are finally going up!!!!!!

The last couple days have been pretty hard as far as feeling alot of bone pain and the doctors thinking I might have a infection. But again I am in the hospital were they have all different drugs and wonderful people to take care of me. I have MS, pain is not a new thing to me. I can definitely handle this pain too! My bones have been hurting so that means to me that my new bone marrow is being produced. My bloodwork confirmed it and my doctors and I are very happy. They said I am doing great! Here is a weird thing. My mouth has been hurting, almost like it was raw inside so they gave me this special cocktail with lidocaine. I compared it to a strawberry mohito. Who said you can't party in the hospital! Tim and my Dad shaved their heads today to support me, those guys even look handsome with bald heads.They are so stinkin sweet! Well here are my #s enjoy. Have a great rest of the weekend!
Love to you all,
Kathy

I believe the light that shines on you
Will shine on you forever
And though I can't guarantee
There's nothing scary hiding under your bed
I'm gonna stand guard like a postcard of a golden retriever
And never leave till I leave you with a sweet dream in your bed


I'm gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father who loved his daughter more than I love you

Heal Fast and Safely,
I live near Chicago and I am asking on my mothers behalf who I contact to schedule this treatment for her. She is relasping remitting and not responsive to MS drugs at this point. She wants to have this done to take her best fighting chance to beat it. Is it called HiCy at rush, I called and they had no clue what I was talking about. So if you have any suggestions we would be very thankful. Continue to be strong and stay strong through your journey every sucess gives my mom strength and hope for her own success.
