The ms roller-coaster....

It's been a few weeks since I've posted so here's an update.  I now (finally) have my Avonex shipments set up and am taking the full dose of Avonex each week.  I did miss almost a week due to insurance issues which changed my injection day from Friday to Wednesday.  This actually works out better because I don't feel like garbage for the weekend.  The night of my first full dose I had chills (it was 90 degrees and humid) and I'm sure I had a fever.  I did feel better by morning and was able to work with no issues except for being very tired.  This didn't happen last week so maybe it was a one-time deal and I'll have smoother sailing with it from now on.

I am feeling better these past few days.  I still have some mild numbness in my right hand and the numbness/tingling in my feel is almost gone.  My legs do get a mild tingling from the waist down.  This comes and goes.  I have more energy lately which is nice.

Only a few more days of school and I am out for summer vacation.  This worries me a bit because I am typically pretty active with my two kids and want to be able to do things with them this summer, too.  I'll just take it one day at a time....
