Long awaited update!

Hello Everyone!
Let me start by apologizing for the long time since my last update!

I am so happy to say that I am doing great! My most recent MRI was compared to my MRI 1 year ago and actually said that the there is no active lesions( Which i could of told them that) and the "white matter" or scaring on my brain has lessened in size! I didn't even know that could happen. That means that the damage that MS has done to my brain is getting better! I also am done with my first round of immunizations! I swear that was worse than the chemo. I now have the immune system of a teenager! HAHA!

Physically I am a different person! From all of my hormone changes I have gained some weight, but I am working out with my father almost every other day! It really feels great! I am doing exercises that I was never able to do! The best part is that I can push myself and not pay for it for days!

One of the worst things from the chemo was worrying that the MS would come back! I would feel a twing or stubble my words and worry that a big lesion was growing on my brain. Come to find out that if you sit on your foot it falls asleep and if you have a few drinks you stubble your words! Who knew?I am happy to say that I do not worry about that as much anymore, if at all!

Ok! The popular question is how is you hair! I am getting use4 to it! I don't look like orphan Annie as much any more! I have become use to the curls. It is still pretty short compared to my old hair but it is growing everyday!

I think everyday about the support that I had while I was in the hospital and when I came home! I will never forget that!

Love Kathy
