Wayback Wednesday is being preempted by some super good co-blogger news (and co-blogger illness) but will return next week…now for the news:
April has been the month of post-baby James tests and check ups for Mama. Today was neurology. After 6 MRI’s (brain, c-spine, and full spine – with and without contrast) my scans were pronounced “unremarkable” with “no acute activity” in the brain. I’ve never been so happy to be pronounced boring and dumb in my life 😉
What that really means twofold. (1) There are no new lesions and (2) because the Copaxone (medicine) has been so effective at stopping new disease from occurring my body has had time to heal itself, as in the old lesions are going away!!! That’s the best news and we are thrilled!
Going forward I will need to keep taking my meds and check in with the doc in 18 months to 2 years. How cool is that?
The other check-ups with the OB and endocrinologist went well also. One set of labs showed high liver enzymes, which will need follow-up, but are most likely due to that baby weight that is still hanging on (sigh), so fewer carbs and more exercise should hopefully do the trick. If nothing else, it will help me get back into my closet as I have few outfits that work at the moment 😦
In other news…
