I am just about to start Novantrone- a chemotherapy drug that is used for multiple sclerosis. After having tried all the drugs- Avonex, Copaxone, Betaseron, and Rebif- then going on to Tysabri...here we are about to begin Novantrone.
My good friend Maria introduced me (via email) to a good friend of hers that also went through chemo to help her MS. Kathy is 2 years past chemo and doing great! So that gives me high hopes. I follow her blog www.rebootingkathy.blogspot.com
I have been enjoying the hell out of my summer- I traveled quite a bit! I went to Chicago to visit my parents for a week. I went to LA to surprise my brother on his 40th bday! Then my whole family went to Colorado for a family reunion! I felt really great while I traveled! When we got home from all the traveling- I started to experience some problems with really heavy legs, blurry vision, blahblahblah.
I am super happy to move on with treatments! I just want to fight this MS with everything that I have got!
Tomorrow is 11 years of sobriety for me! That in itself is reason to be thankful! Thankful for all of the support that I have in my life!
2 days until I am going in for the first dose of chemo! I am not looking forward to the side effects, but willing to go through them if it helps me with my MS.
