“MRI brain scan taken on the 11th May 2018.
This was compared to a previous MRI from May 2017.
I am pleased to note that there were no new white matter lesions identified….
There was also no reported abnormal enhancement…..”
CONCLUSION – THREE YEARS IN REMISSION
19 “Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
Rivers in the desert.
2017-2018: This period was wonderful yet not without its challenges…..
Involving the recent HOT summer we experienced, infections & sicknesses etc.
As well as being confronted with other opinions, living with Neurological damage YET I KNEW & HAD FAITH that after 24 years despite these things the MS had been stopped.….
NO MORE: UNCERTINTY, MEDICATIONS, DISAPPOINTMENTS, FEAR OF THE FUTURE
recognition and enjoyment of the good qualities of someone or something.
“I smiled in appreciation”
valuing, respect, prizing, cherishing, treasuring, admiration, regard, esteem, high opinion
“appreciation of literature comes only from first-hand study of the works of great writers”
I have experienced so many wonderful things that Im so grateful for, here are just a few;
Driving again or should I say learnt to drive a hand controlled car!
Best illustration Ive heard is imagine driving with just your left foot…..
nb. NO ONE OR THING WAS INJURED during this process or has since.
This has enabled me to once again have my independence back (ha as long as its not raining – who enjoys sitting on a wet seat all day!).
Being a 7 seater I can; bundle my nieces in the back to venture out for ‘aunty treats’.
As well as this I have been able to offer its use within my volunteering role with Red Cross supporting former refugees settle into a brand new life in Nelson, New Zealand.
Im looking forward to being able to use it in other areas Im involved with & any other opportunities that open up in the future…..
I am incredibly grateful for the continual help with meeting my needs as well as the odd gratefully unexpected surprises.
Regular travel to Wellington for meetings to take part on a national Board I am on, a major plus of this is seeing & spending time with my wonderful family there.
Big needs being met by local & national; trusts & foundations.
