Some days just go really well don’t they.
Life seems easier and everything flows beautifully. It rains but you manage to get parked right by the entrance of wherever you are going. You have to go shopping for gifts and actually spend time choosing rather than throwing random things in the trolley. And you have your 4 and 7 year old with you. But on these days they are so well behaved that you feel like you’ve finally cracked the code. (It’s bribery in case anyone is still wondering).
Then you go for your monthly blood tests at the hospital. No waiting around. Kids are happy and calm. You nervously ask if they have received your latest MRI results yet, not really knowing whether you want to hear what they have to say at this very time, but it’s too late. She’s checking.
You get told that the treatment you went through (Lemtrada/Alemtuzumab) was worth every drop of worry and difficulty. Your most recent MRI shows no change, which doesn’t sound that exciting, but for someone with relapsing-remitting MS, it really is. No change means no current disease activity which means no further damage going on without you knowing about it.
Phew. Phew. And a bit more phew.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
If your Valentine’s hasn’t been so positive, you’re due an easy one soon. I promise.
